Office of Hearings and Appeals

Volume I

Transmittal No. I-1-46

Chapter: I-1-7

Subject: Class Actions


As a result of a recent review of various sections of the HALLEX, we determined that much of the material formerly contained in I-4-6 (Class Actions) was duplicative of material contained in I-1-7 (formerly called Class Action Implementation) or was outdated. We decided to consolidate all the current information into one section.

Explanation of Content and Changes

This transmittal updates the information formerly in I-4-6 and incorporates it into I-1-7 and we have renamed I-1-7, Class Actions. In addition, we have deleted references to two OHA Headquarters components, Division of Litigation Analysis and Implementation and the Office of Civil Actions, because these components no longer exist. We have also corrected the names of several SSA components. In addition, because the HALLEX is now available on PolicyNet, we have made formatting changes in I-1-7 to accommodate for changes that occur from communicating instructions online rather than on paper.
