What happens if you appeal a Texas Workforce Commission decision?
If you ask for a rehearing and the Commission denies it, you can still appeal that decision to a civil court. If you win your Commission Appeal and the losing party (in other words, the employer) appeals to civil court, it is important that you cooperate with TWC and the Attorney General, who will represent TWC in the civil court proceeding.
How can I appeal against a TWC decision?
Either the unemployed worker or the worker’s employer can file an appeal, and the initial appeal is filed with the appeals tribunal. At the appeals tribunal, a hearing officer decides who wins: the worker or the employer. If either side disagrees with the appeals tribunal’s decision, they can appeal to the commission.
