Re: Commision Level Hearing
Well my lawyer never informed me this was in a different city 4 hours away from me so I missed my hearing.
Would you allow the IC to appeal if you got a default judgment because they didn't show?
Is it normal for them to pay out a claim and then have it overturned so I will have to pay them back? Could I appeal?
You better have a better reason than what you stated if you want to file an appeal, no judge on the planet will buy that story.
Excellent, you didn't present your case, you forfeited.
What are the chances of the commissioners overturning this since I was not present to explain my side?
I'm positive they gave your employer everything they wanted, they had no reason to rule otherwise.
You should've received a letter stating the time, place and whether or not your presence was required at this hearing.
There's no excuse for not showing, the courts have zero tolerance for no shows, if this was a civil case you would be looking at contempt charges.
I'll guarantee, they entered a default judgment against you, you left them no choice.
