If you disagree with the investigator’s decision, you can appeal.
If you appeal, you will get a fair hearing. A fair hearing is your chance to tell your story to the Administrative Hearings Unit. You can represent yourself, or have a lawyer, or someone else speak for you. The Administrative Hearings Unit will review the facts of your case in a fair and objective manner. The Administrative Hearings Unit will decide whether the department’s decision should be upheld or reversed.
If you want to request a fair hearing, call Administrative Hearings at 601-359-4500. You may ask someone you trust to help you ask for a fair hearing.
