null The opposing party filed an appeal. Do I have to participate?
You are not required to participate. However, failing to participate could negatively impact your benefits (for claimants) or your employer tax liability (for employers). For example, a claimant who has been paid benefits and receives an unfavorable appeal decision could result not only in a loss of future benefits, but also an overpayment of benefits previously paid. It is important to appear and participate in the hearing to protect your rights.
