Note: Hyperlinks are currently being added to enable users to obtain both Board decisions and Appellate Court decisions by clicking on the case name. This is a time-consuming process that may take several months to complete. In addition, not all cases are currently available on the Internet for viewing, therefore there will be no hyperlink for those cases.

If you have any questions regarding this, please contact Jan Zimmers (Workers Compensation Board Research Analyst/Webmaster) at 785-296-8484.
