    What is the process for an employer to appeal a MI UIA Brd of Rev decision to the Circuit Court sys?

    What would it entail for the employee who has won all appeals to this stage. What would be her responsibilities if any to the Circuit Court? Would she need to hire an attorney? Or would she just have to be available as a witness to testify on her own behalf? Basically the employer has stated to other sources that he just believes he can wait her out and win the case as she'll fold and won't be able to afford to fight/appeal any longer.

    It sounds as if the employee expects the employer to appeal a decision of an administrative law judge or of the Board of Review to Circuit Court. Cases appealed to the circuit court go to the court nearest the employer or the employee. The employee should be prepared to testify at the court hearing. She does not have to be represented by an attorney but she may hire an attorney to accompany her and assist her at the hearing. (Note: I am an advocate certified by the Unemployment Insurance Agency to represent claimants in hearings before administrative law judges and the Board of Review, but I am not a lawyer and I am not permitted to appear at circuit court hearings on behalf of claimants. Very few unemployment benefit cases are appealed to circuit courts. I'm not sure what the percentage of decisions appealed to circuit courts are reversed. ) Here is a link to a digest of key decisions in Michigan unemployment compensation cases--
