Review of a decision or order
A review is only a chance to re-argue the original case. It is not a rehearing. A review of a decision or order may take place only if the reason is one of three reasons with evidence.
To apply for a review, the person must provide enough evidence to support the grounds for the review and pay a $75 fee.
The person may apply to waive the fee. The application will be granted if the person provides evidence that they cannot afford the fee.
