Hold hearings in person or online.

Why might an online hearing be right for your agency? Online hearings (via WebEx, Zoom, Skype, etc.) can be more economical, and give parties increased flexibility to schedule and attend. Each hearing is recorded and stored securely, along with any documentary evidence provided by the parties, to preserve the record for the legally required period.
