Agreements Section

Agreements Section

​The Agreements Section falls under the authority of the Chief Administrative Law Judge and processes all Form 110 Settlement Agreements received by the Department. Many agreements come from settlements reached without litigation. The Agreements staff reviews those Form 110’s for statutory compliance. The agreements are ultimately approved or disapproved by the Chief Administrative Law Judge. Form 110’s received at DWC in litigated cases are routed through the Agreements Section for transmittal to the ALJ assigned to the claim and responsible for review and approval. The Agreements Section also processes Form 11’s, which are requests to continue spousal or dependent benefits upon the death of an injured worker.​
