What Can I Do If I Disagree With The Decision Of The Hearing Officer?

If you are still not satisfied with the decision, you may appeal to the Board of Review. The Board is a 3­member panel appointed by the Governor. The Board reviews the entire record of the hearing held by the administrative hearing officer and all other relevant materials. They do not hold a hearing with the parties present. They do not take new evidence or testimony. They review the case and either affirm, modify or reverse the decision of the hearing officer. Sometimes they may send the case back (remand) to the hearing officer to re­hear or to take additional testimony. The Board's written decision is mailed to all interested parties. The decision gives appeal rights for appealing the Board's decision.
