An appeal hearing is an informal administrative proceeding between the claimant and the employer. Each party is given an opportunity to present their case. Testimony is given under oath. The majority of hearings are conducted over the phone and usually last between a half hour and an hour. In-person hearings are granted only under rare circumstances.
The Document ID located in the top righthand corner of the Notice of Determination letter is required to file an online appeal. If you have not yet received a Notice of Determination letter, then your claim is still in the adjudication process and you are not yet eligible to file an appeal.
