Trial Notebook: Due Process/Right to be Heard – Workers Compensation

Under the Workers' Compensation Act the employer is entitled to notice and an opportunity to be heard prior to being required to pay benefits. See Holliday v. Jacky Jones Lincoln-Mercury, 251 Ga. App. 493, 554 S.E.2d 286 (2001). Since there was no notice or request for hearing on the issue of permanent partial disability benefits, the issue of permanent partial disability benefits was reversed. All cited in Cypress Ins. Co. v. Duncan, 281 Ga. App. 469, 636 S.E.2d 159 (2006).
