How do I (claimant or employer) appeal an Examiner’s determination on a claim for benefits?

You may file an appeal of the Examiner’s determination to the Hearings and Appeals Division.  The appeal must be filed in writing within 15 calendar days of the mailing date on the original notice of determination or decision or within 7 calendar days if the notice of determination or decision was delivered to you in-person.  The letter of appeal must be signed and include the claimant’s full name, social security number (last four digits) and reason you do not agree with the decision.

This is a first level appeal and should be mailed or faxed to:

Alabama Department of Labor
Hearings and Appeals Division
649 Monroe Street, Room 4677
Montgomery, Alabama  36131
Fax: (334) 956-5891

An appeal can also be filed through the online portal.
