It's hard to be over-prepared for unemployment insurance (UI) hearings. Join 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. The speaker will also provide updates in policies and procedures from the U.S. Department of Labor.
