The Board of Review (BOR) decides unemployment appeals of Department of Unemployment Assistance (DUA) hearing decisions. This is the last step in the administrative appeal process before a case may be appealed to district court.
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.
