UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE HEARINGS
For Claimants - remember, when you request a hearing, you don't have discovery per se. In other words, until you get to review the file, usually a day before or the day of the hearing, you do not know what the other side has submitted in opposition to your claim. One recent claim, which the Claimant thought had involved a certain incident, wound up to be something else. An Administrative Law Judge has the right to expand the issues in a hearing so whatever is in the file, whatever has been submitted in opposition to your claim, may be heard and considered at the hearing.
