If the Oregon Employment Department issues notice of a decision, either
party - claimant or the employer - may request a
hearing on that decision. The hearing is referred to the Office
of Administrative Hearings (OAH), who assigns an administrative law
judge (ALJ) to conduct a telephone hearing if the hearing request is timely.
the ALJ issues a decision, any party (including the Oregon Employment Department, who becomes a
party to the case when a hearing request is filed), may file an application for
review of the ALJ's decision. The review is referred to the
Employment Appeals Board, who reviews the evidence submitted
in the proceeding before the assigned ALJ, and renders a decision.
The Employment Appeals Board
does not conduct hearings. After the Employment Appeals Board issues its decision, any party who
disagrees with the decision, including the Oregon Employment Department, may file a petition for
judicial review with the Court of Appeals. A filing fee or
fee waiver is required to file a petitition for judicial review.Appeals Process Flow Chart
