WORKERS’ COMPENSATION OFFICE OF ADJUDICATION TRANSITION TO MICROSOFT TEAMS
WCOA will be transitioning from the Microsoft Skype for Business meeting platform to its successor Microsoft Teams. These two platforms are very similar in their teleconference/videoconference functions. Stakeholders will still click on “Join Meeting” in the e-mail that is sent by the Judge’s office. Remember to do this before the hearing or mediation to ensure that you have the application you need on the device you are using. This will avoid delays. WCOA will continue to utilize Skype to schedule events until February 28, 2021. Thereafter, events will be scheduled using Microsoft Teams.
Judges currently using the WebEx teleconference/videoconference platform will continue to do so.
