One of the most important aspects of preparing for a hearing is determining what the Employer's position is and the documents submitted by the Employer to the DOL. Also, certain papers which the Claimant should have kept regarding their claim for benefits, if lost, can be found in the file. Unfortunately, there is not much time to review the file. From the Appeals Board website:

"Can I come before the day of the hearing to look at the file?

Yes. At any time after you receive the Notice of Hearing, you may come in to review your file. Call the ALJ Section telephone number on your Notice of Hearing to arrange this.

Can I see my file on the day of the hearing?

A party wishing to review the file on the date of the hearing should arrive 30 minutes early and tell the receptionist that you would like to review the file."
