Will The Hearing Be Similar To The Interview?

No, the hearing is a formal process.  Hearing notices are mailed to both parties. Unlike the interview with the adjudicator, the hearing is conducted with both parties given the opportunity to be present. 

Testimony is taken under oath or affirmation and each witness is subject to questions from the administrative law judge and each party’s representative.  No evidence will be considered for the appeal tribunal decision if it is not presented at the hearing. 

The hearing is recorded.  For information on how to obtain a copy of the recording, see How Do I Get A Copy Of The Hearing Recording?
