Above Full Service is intended for phone hearings only. For representation at an in-person hearing please contact us.
Appeal to Hearing
Appeal to Hearing Our claims specialists will review the initial service center determination and guide you to the right decision for your organization. The language in the determination is state specific and often times can be difficult to understand. Were you successful or unsuccessful? We can help you understand the state guidelines in the appeal process including how to frame the appeal, the disqualifications imposed within your state, the potential chargeability, and relevant relief of charge options specific to your contributory status. Our unemployment specialists will save you time and money in the overall process. You will have the confidence you made the right choice for your organization.
Hearings Consulting Our hearings experts will review the notification of hearing and guide you to the right decision for your organization. The language on the notice of hearing is state specific and often times can be difficult to understand. We can answer the questions you have that the notice of hearing may not address. We will narrow the scope of the issue so you can best present your companies case to the appeals examiner, referee, or ALJ. The employer costs associated with an unemployment hearing both administratively and financially can be substantial – we help to minimize that exposure. You need to know the implications of attendance or non-attendance. We help to take the confusion out of the process and allow you to make an informed decision based on expert feedback. With our help, you will have the confidence needed going into a hearing.
Full Service Our hearing experts provide the most favorable opportunity for a ruling in your company’s favor. A hearings representative will help you prepare for and participate in the hearing. Our representative will help determine the appropriate witnesses to participate, review the issue(s) for separation to help ensure the facts are presented accurately, and be your advocate at the proceeding eliciting testimony from witnesses and cross examination of the claimant as needed. We will review the hearings procedures specific to your state and ensure that all documentation for the case is submitted to the hearings examiner in advance. Our representatives will do the due diligence in all the areas of hearing preparation (witness prep, phone numbers, documentation to present) allowing you to focus on other business matters. The minimal investment in a hearings representative in almost all cases offsets the potential financial exposure associated with the claim.
*For telephone hearings only. Excludes Arizona, Missouri, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
Hearings Board of Review
Hearings Board of Review Our hearing appeal experts will review the hearings ruling and guide you to the right decision for your organization. Similar to a notice of hearing, the language on the hearings decision is state specific and often times can be difficult to understand. We can answer the questions you have that the notice of hearing may not address. We can help to determine if the case was properly adjudicated under the correct unemployment section as listed on the notice of hearing. We can provide the guidance on how to appeal the case further and provide samples as needed to help facilitate the process. Our comprehensive review includes reviewing the hearing decision, the appeal process, a detailed review of the proceedings (where available) and a written brief to use to help achieve the desired results. The employer costs associated with an unemployment hearing appeal both administratively and financially can be substantial – we help to manage and reduce any further costs. You will have the confidence you made the right choice for your organization.
