Request for Reconsideration

Any Decision made by an Unemployment Law Judge as the result of a hearing may be reviewed by the same judge if a Request for Reconsideration is filed within 20 calendar days of the mail date of the Decision. Any party can file a Request for Reconsideration. The appeal decision explains how to file a Request a Reconsideration. If a Request for Reconsideration is filed timely, the unemployment law judge shall issue an order resulting in one of the following:

  1. Modifies the findings of fact and decision;
  2. Sets aside the findings of fact and decision and directs that an additional evidentiary hearing be conducted, or;
  3. Affirms the findings of fact and decision.

The judge will generally not consider new evidence after a Request for Reconsideration unless:

  1. it shows that something submitted at the hearing was false; or
  2. it is particularly important and you can show a good reason you did not submit it at the appeal hearing.
