Utah Labor Commission Appoints New Adjudication Division Director
Commissioner Jaceson R. Maughan of the Utah Labor Commission has announced the appointment of M. Alex Natt as the Director of the Adjudication Division for the Utah Labor Commission.
Natt will serve as chief administrative law judge and head the division whose seven administrative law judges conduct the Labor Commission’s formal hearings on such matters as workers’ compensation claim denials, employment and housing discrimination, and occupational safety and health violations and penalties. Natt joined the Utah Labor Commission in August of 2022, serving in the Adjudication Division as an administrative law judge.
A native New Yorker and 1996 graduate of the SJ Quinney College of Law, Mr. Natt has practiced as a litigator in state and federal courts defending Utah’s ski industry and as corporate counsel to various companies.
Natt holds a certificate of conflict resolution from the University of Utah and is a mediator and arbitrator in Olympic sport. He also volunteers his time as a Justice Court Judge for Salt Lake City and Summit County.
“I’m looking forward to serving the Labor Commission in this new role,” said Mr. Natt. “And contributing my skills to an already great team.”
The Utah Labor Commission is a state agency that works to achieve safety for employers and employees in the state’s workplaces and ensure fairness in employment and housing through services that include consultation, education, inspections, compliance, and mediation.
