The effects of the Employer in the past two examples, viz., Requesting A Hearing, Defaulting, Applying to Reopen, Defaulting, etc. are as follows:

1. Increase stress suffered by Claimant.

2. Increase in attorneys fees and expenses incurred by Claimant.

3. Increase in costs, manpower, etc. on the Appeals Board who has to process the applications, etc.

4. Other Claimants who are seeking hearings when they have been denied benefits are experiencing a longer delay in obtaining their hearing date because hearing time is being wasted on hearings that do not take place because of Employer defaults.
