Petitions for Reconsideration or Rehearing
A party has 14 days from the date of service of a Board order to petition for reconsideration or rehearing. Any petition for reconsideration or rehearing must specifically state the ground(s) for the petition.
Petition for Rehearing.
A petition for rehearing asks the Board to return the matter to the ALJ for the purpose of submitting additional evidence.
A petition for rehearing shall be granted only if the petitioner establishes that the petitioner would be unduly prejudiced if the petition was denied. If the basis for the petition is based on previously unavailable evidence, the petitioner must establish that the evidence could not reasonably have been discovered and produced at the hearing.
Petition for Reconsideration.
A petition for reconsideration asks the Board to reconsider a ruling, finding of fact, or conclusion of law in a Final Order.
In a case where a Final Order is issued without a Recommended Order, the Board shall generally grant a party’s request for reconsideration and grant oral argument.
In a case where a Final Order is issued following a Recommended Order, a petition for reconsideration should be limited to:
A claim of factual error;
A claim that there has been a change in the statutes or case law since the issuance of the Final Order that affects the case; or
A claim that the Board erred in construing or applying the law. A claim addressing legal and factual issues already argued and addressed in the Final Order is disfavored.
