Can I Appeal The Administrative Law Judge's Decision?

Yes.  An appeal must be received or postmarked within 21 days from the date of the decision.

The front page of the decision will indicate the deadline date for appeal. There is no filing fee for this appeal. You may mail, fax or deliver your appeal to an insurance hearing office or directly to the Labor and Industry Review Commission or file your appeal over the Internet by following the directions at Electronic Petition for Review Forms.

If the appeal is timely, the Commission will review the evidence already presented at the hearing in order to make a decision.  No further hearing will be held unless the Commission orders one.  For further information, consult the Labor and Industry Review Commission web page.
