NHES certifying officers rule on and issue decisions on unemployment compensation claim issues. Such a decision is known as a Determination of Unemployment Compensation. The claimant or an employer who is an interested party to the claim has the right to request an appeal if the party disagrees with the determination. An appeal is timely if it is submitted within 14 calendar days of the issue (mail) date of the determination being appealed.
The Appeal Tribunal Unit administers these appeals. Appeal requests are processed, and de novo administrative hearings are scheduled. The Appeals Tribunal Chairmen conduct the hearings and issue decisions on the issue under appeal. The Chairmen also presides at Administrative Hearings, sometimes as the chair of an Administrative Hearing Committee (AHC), and issue decisions on employer tax appeals, such as whether an individual worked "in employment" and whether a business is subject to unemployment compensation taxation. Appeals of these "liability" determinations are timely if filed within 14 calendar days of the determination mail date. Administrative hearings are also held and decisions issued on claimant and employer compromise requests.
