When VEC sent out the notice of claimant's appeal of Telephone Fact Finding session that supported Misconduct allegation, VEC added a new item that was not previously on the table. In addition to adjudicating the performance issue, a new item will be to determine if the employee left voluntarily.
In the fact finding call VEC documented the employer's statement which confirmed that the employee was discharged and given the final paycheck
Is something amiss here?
Should the claimant seek administrative dismissal of the new charge at some point during the appeal hearing?
