The Court of Workers’ Compensation Claims adjudicates disputed claims if the date injury is on or after July 1, 2014. Claims involving injuries occurring on or after July 1, 2014 will no longer be resolved by an Attorney Specialist within the Division or be heard in a Chancery or Circuit Court located in most counties. Rather, Workers’ Compensation Judges appointed by the Administrator of the Division will preside over courtrooms in each of the Division’s area offices.

Search older opinions on the TNCourts.gov site by selecting "Workers Compensation Panel" in the court dropdown menu.

The Tennessee Legislature passed comprehensive Workers’ Compensation reform legislation in 2013. The reform created a new, administrative Court of Workers' Compensation Claims within the Workers’ Compensation Division.

As part of the 2013 reforms, the legislature also created the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board, which is responsible for reviewing interlocutory and compensation orders issued by workers’ compensation judges.

Rules of the Department of Labor and Workforce Development are available for Mediation and Hearing Procedures and the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board.

The material contained on this site consisting of orders and decisions issued by the Court of Workers' Compensation Claims and the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board is provided to the public solely for informational purposes. The mission of the Tennessee Court of Workers' Compensation Claims is to provide a fair, efficient, and professional system to employees and employers that will promote economic prosperity for all Tennesseans.
