NL 00703.471 Expedited Appeals Process (EAP) is Denied
Document Identifier Word Processor: E3471
A. Exhibit Letter
We are writing to tell you that you will not be able to use the Expedited Appeals Process (EAP) which you requested. The rest of this letter will explain why you will not be able to use the EAP, and what will happen to your case now.
Why We Cannot Approve Your Request
(This will be a dictated paragraph giving the reason for disallowing the request.)
What Happens Now
Since you cannot use the EAP, we will process your request for a review using our regular rules. We will send your case to the Office of Hearing and Appeals for a review which is called a hearing.
How A Hearing Works
A person who has not seen your case before will look at it. That person will be an Administrative Law Judge. The Administrative Law Judge will correct any mistakes and look at any new facts you have before deciding your case.
You will get a letter when a date for the hearing is set. The letter will give you more information about what to expect at a hearing.
If You Have Any Questions
B. Requesting Instructions
