The mission of the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) Division is to resolve disputed cases involving workers’ compensation, occupational safety and health (OSHA), and youth employment in an efficient and equitable manner. The Industrial Commission employs full-time administrative law judges (ALJ) in Phoenix and Tucson.

All ALJs are active members of the State Bar of Arizona and with a minimum of five years experience in workers’ compensation, occupational safety and health, employment, or a related field. Seventeen ALJs sit in Phoenix; five sit in Tucson. Most hearings are held in Phoenix or Tucson, but hearings may be held in other locations around the state. ALJ, like superior court judges in non-jury trials, hold hearings, make findings of fact and conclusions of law, and issue formal written decisions.

Their decisions are appealable directly to the Arizona Court of Appeals.
