Can I request to read my employer's response to my appeal regarding my unemployment benefits ahead of the hearing ?

Asked 6 months ago - Sherman Oaks, CA

Will he be responding at all or just be notified about the hearing ?
Can he request to read my appeal letter, which is quite specific ,before the hearing ?

    Answered . Yes, in fact, I would advise you to contact the appeals office as soon as a hearing date is scheduled and ask them to send you a copy of the entire file. If there is not enough time to send it to you, go to the appeals office and ask for a copy. You can get the file before the hearing, which will help you be better prepared.

    They say you get what you pay for, and this response is free, so take it for what it is worth. This is my opinion... more
