If a continuance is granted, the Administrative Law Judge shall state the specific reason for the continuance. A continuance may be granted:

(1) If circumstances, including the time allocated for the scheduled hearing, prevent all parties from presenting their evidence and argument;
(2) Upon a showing of due diligence, as described in OAR 438-006-0081(2), if necessary to afford reasonable opportunity to cross-examine on documentary medical or vocational evidence;
(3) Upon a showing of due diligence, as described in OAR 438-006-0081(2), if necessary to afford reasonable opportunity for the party bearing the burden of proof to obtain and present final rebuttal evidence;
(4) Upon motion of an adverse party, if that party is surprised and prejudiced by a new issue raised during a hearing; or
(5) For any reason that would justify postponement of a scheduled hearing under OAR 438-006-0081.
