Delaware Department of Labor

Division of Industrial Affairs

After filing for bankruptcy in August 2023, Yellow Corporation notified the State of Delaware Department of Labor that it would cease funding its self-insurance program for workers’ compensation. Consequently, the Department called the surety bond that Yellow had deposited to secure its workers’-compensation liabilities, and the Department now holds those funds in trust for Yellow’s injured employees. The Department filed a petition with the Industrial Accident Board under Hearing No. 1541397 to administer those funds. The Department and the Board are now attempting to identify all persons who have a claim for workers’ compensation against Yellow.

By order of the Board, any person interested in pursuing a claim or otherwise involving himself in the proceedings must file a simple, written declaration of intent with the Board by March 28, 2024. The declaration must state the claimant’s name, current mailing address, and claimed date of injury with Yellow. The declaration must be mailed to:

Delaware Department of Labor
Office of Workers’ Compensation
c/o Allison Stein, Administrator
4425 N. Market St., 3rd Fl.
Wilmington, DE 19802

Any claimant who fails to submit a timely written declaration of intent will be precluded from benefiting from the bond funds, except for good cause shown.
