UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE - HEARINGS AND APPEALS - REOPENING DEFAULT - CASE NO. 4

A week before the hearing, the claimant had obtained new employment and so advised me.

But even though the claimant was no longer in need of benefits, the claimant must still proceed with the process of litigating the employer's objection - if the employer establishes that the claimant was not entitled to benefits and/or that wilful misrepresentations were made in seeking benefits, the DOL may seek repayment of the benefits already paid. Thus, even when a claimant no longer needs UI benefits, there is still a financial necessity to continue the process.
