What Happens In An Appeals Hearing?
The hearing is typically conducted by telephone, although the referee may, upon request of one of the parties of interest, conduct the hearing in person. The hearing is conducted with all parties of interest. When necessary, witnesses may also participate in the hearing process. The employee, employer, and witnesses give testimony relevant to the case under oath. Each party has the opportunity to ask questions of the other party. Documents that are relevant to the case and support your testimony may be submitted into evidence for the referee to consider in making a decision. When all testimony is on the record, the hearing is closed and the referee will issue a decision.
