Click on the case numbers below to access eligibility decisions about whether a party's unemployment appeal may proceed in light of appeal deadlines.


N6-H67D-F38K (Oct. 13, 2021) - The claimant filed an appeal of an identity verification determination, but inadvertently attached the appeal to different determination issued two days earlier.  Where the substance of his appeal addressed identity verification and was filed nearly simultaneously with issuance of the identity verification determination, Board deemed the hearing request to have been timely filed pursuant to G.L. c. 151A, § 39(b).


BR-112257 (Mar. 11, 2011) - A claimant had good cause to return his hearing request 9 days late under G.L. c. 151A, sec. 39(b) and 430 CMR 4.14(6).  The claimant promptly mailed it into DUA within the same window of time that he would have had if DUA had sent the determination to the claimant's correct address.
