It is your right as the employer to attend the Conciliation, Conference and/or Hearing proceedings; however you may not participate unless you are called as a witness. For this purpose, all employers are encouraged to maintain well documented records of all accidents and reports including names of witnesses. If you have any pertinent information relating to any claims, you should inform the insurer. While the insurer is the legally interested party during the claims process, the employer will receive notice of Conciliation, Hearing, Lump Sum Conference or any proceeding involving employer misconduct (MGL c. 152, § 28). You are required to attend only the § 28 Willful Misconduct proceedings.
