Board of Review
After the Appeal Tribunal Hearing is held and the decision is issued, the next step in the appeals process is to file a written appeal with the Board of Review, within 10 calendar days of the mailing date of that decision.
The appeal may be mailed to:
PO Box 53345
Oklahoma City, OK 73152
Faxed to: (405) 962-7540
Emailed to: email@example.com or
Hand-delivered to: the 5th floor reception desk, at the Will Rogers Building, 2401 N. Lincoln Boulevard, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
The Board consists of three people appointed by the Governor for six-year terms. The Board does not hold Hearings. The members of the Board will listen to the recording of the hearing and consider any exhibits that the Appeal Tribunal Hearing Officer admitted into the record. They generally cannot accept new evidence that was not entered into the record at the Appeal Tribunal Hearing. The Board can affirm the Appeal Tribunal decision, reverse it, or remand it to either the Appeal Tribunal or the Commission with instructions on how to proceed.
The Board of Review is the last step of the appeal process within the OESC. The parties have 30 days from the mailing date of the Board’s decision in which to file an appeal for judicial review to the District Court in the claimant’s county of residence if they choose to appeal further.
