Highlight

A challenge to Workforce Safety and Insurance employee classifications is a mixed question of law and fact, requiring a review of whether the findings of fact is supported by a preponderance of the evidence and whether those findings support the applied classification.
An administrative law judge may properly exclude evidence of changes to employee classification codes that arose after the relevant audit time period.
