The NC Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH) is an independent, quasi-judicial agency established to provide a forum for resolution of contested cases involving citizens and state agencies by Administrative Law Judges; investigation of alleged unlawful employment and housing discrimination, including legal counsel and managerial assistance to the Human Relations Commission (HRC); and legal and technical assistance associated with state agency rulemaking, including legal counsel to the Rules Review Commission (RRC) and publication of the North Carolina Register (NCR) and the North Carolina Administrative Code (NCAC). OAH was created to ensure that functions of rulemaking, investigation, advocacy, and adjudication are not combined in the administrative process.
