BIIA Pro-Equity Anti-Racism (PEAR) Statement

The Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals (BIIA) is committed to improving litigants' access to justice by reducing or removing as many social, structural, and economic barriers as possible so that everyone involved may focus on the merits of the appeal. We recognize the importance of our agency’s role in dismantling systemic racism within the State of Washington.

We are aware of the diverse backgrounds of our employees and customers and how discrimination can overlap and compound in very harmful ways. We prioritize and advocate for implementing policies, programs, and practices that promote equal justice.
