We are working to fix a technical issue involving the Virtual Hearings iOS app. Affected users can still join their hearings from a web browser on their iOS device, or their laptop/desktop, by going to http://www.wcb.ny.gov/virtual-hearings/. Users may also attend their hearings using the Android VHC app.


Due to a technical issue, mail from the Board is currently going out on a delayed schedule. We will update once resolved.
