TITLE 56: LABOR AND EMPLOYMENT
CHAPTER I: DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
SUBCHAPTER b: REGULATION OF WORKING CONDITIONS
PART 300 PAYMENT AND COLLECTION OF WAGES OR FINAL COMPENSATION
SECTION 300.1060 FORMAL HEARING CONTINUANCES
Section 300.1060 Formal Hearing Continuances
Parties shall be prepared to proceed at the hearing. Absent an emergency, all requests for a continuance must be made in writing to the ALJ at least 10 days prior to the scheduled hearing and will be granted only upon a showing of good cause. Copies of all continuance requests shall be served on the other party. Examples of good cause include the non-receipt or delayed receipt of mail or the unavailability of a witness or a party due to accident, illness or other circumstances beyond the party's control. When a hearing has been scheduled and a subsequent conflict arises in a schedule of a party's attorney, such as an appointment with a client, court appearance or comparable matter scheduled for the same time, those factors shall not be considered good cause shown. The Department may also cancel and continue a hearing due to an emergency or the unavailability of an ALJ. If granted, the Department will provide the parties with notice of the continuance of the hearing.
