Clerk of the Industrial Commission

NC Industrial Commission Clerk’s Office

Our Mission

The mission of the Clerk’s Office is to ensure that all case filings are promptly placed in the appropriate Industrial Commission files, routed to the appropriate IC staff, and that cases to be heard by the Industrial Commission are timely placed on the docket and move through the system as efficiently and expeditiously as possible.

The mission will be accomplished to the highest degree possible by promoting e-filing, adhering to Industrial Commission Rules, policies, and procedures; by being accessible; and by providing all parties and Industrial Commission staff with respectful, responsive and reliable service.

Currently, documents intended for Dockets, Deputy Commissioners, and Full Commission are filed through the Clerk of the Industrial Commission.

How We Can Help You

The Clerk’s Office is the appropriate section to call for:

  • Questions about filing documents
  • Filing and case status for workers’ compensation cases that are being appealed
  • Tort claims
  • Law Enforcement claims
  • To determine the status of both workers’ compensation and tort claims after a request for hearing has been filed.
