The county may still initiate an ADH if they feel there is enough evidence to warrant a hearing. The county manager or designee (other than the worker who made the claim determination) must review the claim or referral before the county initiates the ADH.
To initiate the ADH, enter Y in the ADH field on the CARS Change Claim Information (OVCC) screen, and forward the IM-160 Advance Notice of Your Administrative Disqualification Hearing to the Hearing Unit. The Hearing Unit schedules the ADH. The county office is responsible for preparing the case, obtaining witnesses, and representing the agency.
