  The Difference Between the DOWC and the OAC

The Division of Workers' Compensation (DOWC) and Office of Administrative Courts (OAC) are separate divisions of state government. OAC conducts administrative hearings for several state agencies, including the DOWC. The DOWC’s Prehearing and Settlement Conference Unit (PHU) works in conjunction with the OAC to resolve preliminary matters such as extensions of time and discovery issues before the OAC hearings. The PHU does not make findings of fact, though some of the judges conduct arbitrations. PHU orders may be appealed at the OAC. Orders from the OAC or DOWC Director may be appealed at the Industrial Claim Appeals Office (ICAO).
