The Appeal Tribunal is the only full evidentiary hearing that you will have. The hearing is conducted by telephone with a hearing examiner. The employer will usually be on the telephone hearing and often will be represented by an attorney or a third party administrator. The examiner takes testimony, including cross-examination and the parties are also permitted to examine each other and introduce evidence and fact-witnesses. The parties are also entitled submit legal arguments in advance and at the hearing. For all of these reasons, it is extremely important to be represented by counsel for an Appeal Tribunal in New Jersey.
