The Office of Administrative Law Judges adopted new Rules of Procedure effective June 18, 2015. The OALJ published certain corrections to the new rule on July 1, 2015, and the text of the new rules, with corrections, may be found here. According to the OALJ, the "revisions make the regulations more accessible and useful to parties. The revisions also harmonize administrative hearing procedures with the current FRCP and with the types of claims now heard by OALJ, which increasingly involve whistleblower and other workplace retaliation claims, in addition to a longstanding caseload of occupational disease and injury claims."
