From the case reported yesterday, note the time line of the appeal.

1. Claimant terminated in November 2008.

2. Claimant receives adverse determination from DOL in January 2009.

3. Claimant requests hearing in March 2009.

4. Hearing held without counsel and in January 2010, a decision is issued against Claimant.

5. Counsel is retained in February 2010.

6. Notice of Appeal filed in February 2010 and arguments submitted.

7. Appeal Board decision issued in August 2010.

The remanded hearing will probably not take place until September. So if successful, this Claimant will have been without Unemployment Insurance benefits for almost 2 years.
