Upon receipt of the notice of hearing, and no later than five calendar days before the scheduled date of hearing, parties may submit to the chief unemployment law judge, by electronic transmission or mail, any documents a party would like to offer as exhibits at the hearing. Copies of the documents submitted by the parties, as well as all documents that are contained in the department's records that will be introduced as exhibits, must be mailed, or sent by electronic transmission, to all parties or the parties' representatives by the chief unemployment law judge in advance of the hearing.
If a party requests to introduce additional documents during the course of the hearing, and the unemployment law judge rules that the documents should be considered, the requesting party must provide copies of the documents to the unemployment law judge and the other party. The record must be left open for sufficient time for the submission of a written response to the documents. The response may be sent by mail or electronic transmission. The unemployment law judge may, when appropriate, reconvene the hearing to obtain a response or permit cross-examination regarding the late filed exhibits.
