Amended Monetary Determinations

(1) An individual who receives a monetary claim determination under ORS 657.266(2) may request that the determination be amended. The Director upon receipt of such a request will examine wage records submitted to the Department by employers in an attempt to locate wages and/or hours of work alleged by the claimant to be missing. If the discrepancy involves only hours of work and the claimant has provided documentary evidence of hours sufficient to make the claim valid, the Director may issue a redetermination.

(2) If as the result of an investigation additional subject wages or hours of work are made available which either allow a non-valid claim to become valid, or increase the weekly benefit amount of a valid claim, a redetermination will be issued.

(3) If as the result of an investigation all or part of the requested wages or hours of work are not included in the claim determination, the Director will so notify the claimant. If the claimant requested an amended monetary determination as provided in section (1) of this rule within the period specified by ORS 657.266(5), such notice will be given by a determination amending or affirming the initial determination. Such notice shall be subject to appeal as provided in ORS 657.266(5).

(4) An employer is affected by an amended determination issued under ORS 657.266(3) if it is found to have paid wages to a claimant, and is potentially affected if a claimant alleges wages were paid to him or her by that employer.

(5) If, during a hearing on an initial or amended determination issued under ORS 657.266(2) or (3), an issue arises as to whether wages at issue were actually paid to claimant by an employer that was not given notice of the initial or amended determination, that employer will become a party to that hearing. If the hearing has already commenced, it will be continued to allow reasonable time for the employer to be notified of the hearing.
