1. What is a MSC?

A Mandatory Settlement Conference (MSC) is generally the first conference or hearing at the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board (WCAB). The MSC is an opportunity to discuss settlement with the representatives of the insurance carrier/employer. Cases often settle at the MSC. If your case does not settle, it may be continued for further hearing or set for trial.

2. Do I have to attend the MSC?

Yes. The MSC stands for Mandatory Settlement Conference. Mandatory means that you are required to go. If you have a true emergency we might be able to get permission from the Judge to allow you to be on telephone standby. However, such emergencies are rare. It is your case and you are expected to participate and attend the necessary hearings.

3. Will my case settle at the MSC?

There is no way to know in advance if your case will settle at the MSC. Settlement is the goal, but so many variables go into a case, that there is really no way to know if your case will settle or not.

4. Will I talk to a Judge at the MSC?

Probably not. The Judge typically spends their time facilitating settlement with the attorneys. There are times when clients do speak with the Judge, but if this is to happen in your case, we will let you know what will be asked and how to respond. The attorney will be present with you when you speak to the Judge.
