  • Employer Appeals DLSE Decision. Have Questions

    I recently was awarded waiting time penalties by the Labor Commissioner. My employer automatically appealed the decision. I have to appear at the appeal conference next week. I wanted to know what should I expect that didnt happen at the first conference. I know that I can submit evidence and have witness if I wish.

    I do understand that if any party appeals the outcome of this conference, then the matter will go to court.

    This is an appeal to a trial de novo in Superior Court, correct? Is the DLSE representing you? I believe they have to if you prevailed in the in-house hearing they conducted. The Superior Court proceeding will be much less informal than the DLSE's in-house hearing.

      No, the trial de novo will happen if my former employer appeals the commissioners decision next week. I was already awarded waiting time penalties at a "claim and conference" a few weeks ago. They appealed that decision, so now we go back again next week. Hope this make sense.
