Unemployment Insurance Appeal Reversal Rates

The reversal rate is the percentage of the total number of cases heard by an Unemployment Insurance Lower/Higher Authority appellate body that were reversed in favor of the appellant.

The information is also categorized by appellant or moving party:

  • Claimant Appeals indicates that the claimant was adversely affected by the most recent determination on the issue, and was therefore the appellant or moving party in the case.
  • Employer Appeals indicates that the employer was adversely affected by the most recent determination on the issue, and was therefore the appellant or moving party in the case.
  • Other Appeals generally indicates that state workforce agency or an interested party other than the claimant and employer was adversely affected by the most recent determination on the issue, and was therefore the appellant or moving party in the case.

The measure is computed using data provided on the ETA 5130 Benefit Appeals Report.

Reversal Rate equals Appeals Decisions In Favor of Appellant divided by Total Appeals Decisions then multiplied by 100

The reversal rate report covers the one-year period ending with the selected quarter-ending date.
