How Should I Prepare For The Hearing?

Start immediately to gather any papers that relate to the issue such as correspondence from your employer, union contracts, warning notices or medical statements. Also, be certain that any witnesses who are eyewitnesses or who have other direct knowledge of the events in question are available to attend the hearing.

Since the hearing before the Referee is the only chance you will have to tell your story, be prepared to tell the Referee everything you think is important and to present all witnesses and evidence at the hearing. You have the right to have an attorney or authorized agent represent you at the hearing, but it is not required.
