This is the official website of the Florida Office of the Judges of Compensation Claims (OJCC). The OJCC is part of the Division of Administrative Hearings (DOAH). The OJCC is responsible for adjudicating disputes over workers� compensation benefits. This site provides information and tools that are useful in these disputes.
The OJCC operates seventeen District Offices in Florida. Each Judge of Compensation Claims is appointed by the Governor for a four year term, based upon the recommendation of the Statewide Judicial Nominating Commission.
The purpose of this website is to provide general guidance, not legal advice. No personnel of the OJCC are permitted to provide legal advice. This site provides links to various statutory authorities (Chapter 440, Florida Statutes, and Chapter 90, Florida Statutes), which pertain to claims for workers' compensation benefits. The Rules of Procedure for Workers…Compensation Adjudications, and helpful forms are also available on this website. Trial decisions of the Judges of Compensation Claims can be searched by topic, and orders issued in cases are accessible in the case docket which can be located using the case search function.
Further information about the OJCC and how to use this site is provided in the "Representing Yourself" page.
