In the legacy system if a case was already set for hearing, it
was not Commission practice to add new issues into the system
because it would set a second hearing for those new issues. The
issues were filed in the claim file and the party would advise
the Commissioner that the new issues were there. However,
because those issues were never entered into the database,
CompHub doesn’t recognize that the issues exist even though they
are visible in Claim documents. This problem will resolve when
new issues are filed in CompHub and the case is already set.
In the meantime, please file a Consent Request for Document
Correction asking the Commission to withdraw the issues filed on
the date the issues were originally filed and list the specific
issues to be withdrawn. The Commission will withdraw the issues.
If you prefer to have a document on file, you may still file the
Consent Request for Document Correction and ask the Commission
