It’s hard to be over-prepared for unemployment insurance (UI) hearings. Join two officials from the Iowa Workforce Development UI division to learn what to expect before and during a hearing with an administrative law judge (ALJ), including prehearing processes, the hearing notice, and appeals before the Employment Appeal Board and beyond. They will offer tips, define stages of the hearing process, and share resources to find information relevant to the specific employer’s involvement in the UI claim process. Do not miss this opportunity to prepare for and defend against a claim filed against your organization.
Brenda Boten is a benefits bureau chief in the Unemployment Insurance Division of Iowa Workforce Development since 2009. Prior to joining IWD, Brenda was an executive at a non-profit agency. She has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Northern Iowa.
