The employer has the right to file an appeal if you disagree with paying a claimant’s claim.
There are two types of Appeals
1 – Notice of Appeal to Appeal Tribunal and
2 – Application for Leave to Appeal to the Appellate Panel.
The first type of appeal may be filed after the determination has been made by Claims Adjudicator. The second type of appeal may be filed after the Appeal Tribunal has communicated their decision. By law, you must file your appeal within 10 calendar days of the mailing date listed on the Determination or the Appeal Tribunal decision. If the 10th day falls on a weekend or recognized holiday, the appeal period extends to the next business day.
For more information, go to the Appeals Information for Claimants and Employers page on the DEW website.
