MEMORANDUM OPINION

The employer has petitioned for commission review of the adverse appeal tribunal decision which found that the employe was discharged from his employment but not for misconduct connected with his work. The commission has reviewed the record and agrees with the appeal tribunal's findings of fact and conclusions of law. The employer did not prove its allegations, it only established that allegations had been made against the employe. The employer requests that the case be reopened pending results of the employe's arrest and investigation. The administrative law judge's decision will remain in effect. However, the commission notes that under Wis. Stat. 108.09(6)(c), the commission has two years to set aside any final decision on the basis of mistake or newly discovered evidence. The commission generally finds that a guilty plea, or a conviction following a plea of not guilty, constitutes "newly discovered evidence." Therefore, if the employer obtains evidence of such guilty plea or conviction of guilt, it may petition the commission to set aside the decision in this case under the two-year statute.
