You will be notified by mail to appear at a hearing. Along with your notification you will receive a pamphlet explaining the appeals process. The hearing will be held at the local office where you file your claim. In some cases, such as an interstate claim appeal, the hearing will be conducted by telephone. If, for good reason, you cannot attend or call on the date scheduled, you may request a postponement according to the instruction on the notice.
If you decide to obtain an attorney for your hearing, your attorney must file an “appearance” letter with the appeal tribunal and the other interested parties to notify them of the attorney involvement in the hearing. Your attorney will be contacted by the appeal tribunal in order to schedule the hearing.
