UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE - HEARING AND APPEAL - REQUEST FOR HEARING

With respect to Claimant's request for a hearing, we must first look to the statute:

"Sec. 620. Referees` hearings. 1. Disputed claims for benefits. (a) A claimant who is dissatisfied with an initial determination of his claim for benefits or any other party, including any employer whose employer account percentage might be affected by such determination, may, within thirty days after the mailing or personal delivery of notice of such determination, request a hearing. The referee may extend the time fixed for requesting a hearing, upon evidence that the physical condition or mental incapacity of the claimant prevented the claimant from filing an appeal within thirty days of the initial determination. Any employer whose employer account percentage might be affected by such determination, irresepctive of whether or not such employer was a party to a hearing brought hereunder, shall have free access to all records of any hearing brought hereunder by any party relating to such determination.

Paragraph (a) as amended by L. 1959, Ch. 224, L. 1975, Ch. 82 effective October 1, 1975 and further amended by L. 1998, Ch. 589, effective April 1, 1999."
