      The most important thing is be prepared.
      You don’t have to come off like some kind of Clarence Darrel so just relax.
      For the most part it is relatively informal, It’s not likely you’ll be walking in to an actual court room, just a room with a table with the Judge who's most likely retired from the bench doing a little moonlighting, at one end with a tape recorder and you on one side of the table with your former employer or their representative on the other side.
      It probably won’t take too long,
      You may receive mail from an attorney or attorneys “hired” by your former employer, in an attempt to intimidate you. Don’t let it. The price of a stamp and a nickels worth of paper is far cheaper than a $250 an hour Lawyer.
      In my case I won before I even got my foot in the door. They sent a secretary who was hired two months after I was “let” go who was clueless.
      I on the other hand, had copies of everything I could get my hands on..and a VERY solid argument.

      It was ‘over’ before it got started…..drr

      And to this day I’m still “bared” from rehire.
      Boy, talk about sore losers!

        Listen to what the judge actually says. Keep your argument brief and on point. Repeating the same point over and over again until the judge "gets it" generally does not work. Avoid grievances unrelated to the issues at hand. Assume that the judge does not want to mediate a shouting match between parties. Often the party who brasses off the judge the least wins.

          Since this thread is from 12-1-09 I believe OP has already had their hearing.
