To get a hearing postponed, you must have a good reason, such as recently hiring an attorney. You must contact the opposing party to get their position on your request for postponement. Then, you must contact the Hearings Division — either in writing, via fax, by telephone, or using WCB online services — to request a postponement. Do not assume your request will be automatically granted. The Hearings Division will then notify you whether your hearing has been postponed.
