Resolving disputes

The Workers' Compensation Board is an independent and impartial forum for resolving disputes arising out of workers’ compensation law and the Oregon Occupational Safety Act.


If you disagree with a decision on a workers' compensation claim, you may have the right to appeal the decision to the Workers' Compensation Board.

Mediation services

Mediation can be a positive alternative to litigation. Mediation saves time and expense, removes uncertainty, and allows the parties to create a resolution of their case in a manner that serves their best interests.

Interpreter services program

The Workers' Compensation Board provides interpreters for its hearings and mediations at no cost. Many languages are available. Interpreter requests should be submitted at least two weeks before the hearing or mediation.

Forms and other requests

Don't have an attorney?

Workers' compensation is complex. We urge injured workers to get an attorney. You are not required to have an attorney, but the employer and its insurer will be represented by an attorney.
