What happens after I file an appeal?

After you file your appeal, staff in the Office of Appeals will prepare your hearing packet, which includes the letter of appeal, any documentation submitted with the letter of appeal, the determination being appealed, and all documentation previously submitted by both the claimant and the employer to the Kansas Department of Labor that is relevant to the issue appealed. The case will then be scheduled for hearing. Cases are scheduled on a first in, first out basis.
