What is a fair hearing?

A fair hearing is a review process outlined under the Administrative Procedure Act, chapter 34.05 RCW and chapter 388-02 WAC that is conducted by an administrative law judge who works for the office of administrative hearings. During a fair hearing, both you and DVR may present information, witnesses, and/or documents to support your position. You may ask someone to represent you, such as an attorney, a friend, a relative, a representative from the client assistance program, or someone else you choose. The administrative law judge makes a decision after hearing all of the information presented; reviewing any documents submitted, and reviewing relevant laws and regulations.
