Who we serve

The Board of Review serves workers and employers who wish to appeal a hearing decision.  Our decisions affect eligibility for unemployment benefits, training, waiver of overpayments, business successorship, and related issues.

The Massachusetts Legislature created the BOR, an independent, 3-member quasi-judicial state board, to review unemployment cases decided by the Department of Unemployment Assistance (DUA) Hearings Department.
