UNEMPLOYMENT HEARINGS - PREPARATION FOR HEARINGS

Here are more comments on some of the statements made on the Appeals Board FAQ website on hearings. The next FAQ is as follows:

"Who can ask for a hearing?

A claimant or employer who is affected by the determination can ask for a hearing. Under the law, charges for benefits are shared by all employers of the claimant in the base period. That is why employers who are not the last employer may also ask for a hearing. If a claimant receives a Notice of Hearing, he or she should attend to preserve any rights to benefits."

A Claimant should be aware that the parties involved in the hearing may not be just the Claimant and Employer. There are times when the DOL also becomes a party to the hearing and the DOL's interst may be adverse to either request.
