OATH establishes its first-ever Clerk’s Office
On June 13, 2016, OATH officially established its Office of the Clerk. Clerks in the Clerk’s Office are responsible for assisting those respondents who come to OATH for in-person hearings or call OATH with questions about the status of their case or seek information about the options available to them. Clerks also manage the hearing calendar for the OATH Hearings Divisions; they field requests to reschedule hearings as well as help cases flow throughout the day by making sure OATH’s Hearing Officers have the case files and other necessary materials needed to conduct hearings in an efficient, fair and orderly manner. The Clerk’s Office is also responsible for accepting payments, processing penalties, and mailing out the Hearing Officers’ decisions and other notices. OATH Clerks can be reached by calling OATH’s helpline at 1-844-OATH-NYC, by email at or by visiting an OATH Hearing Center in person.
