Appealing the Order

Any party has the right to appeal an ALJ order. If a party wishes to appeal an order, a Petition for Commission Review (WKC-28) must be filed within 21 days of the mailing date of the ALJ order. On this form the appealing party states the points of disagreement with the order. The Labor Industry Review Commission (LIRC) will review the hearing record. LIRC can affirm, reverse, modify, or set aside the ALJ order. All parties will receive a copy of the LIRC decision. Any party may also appeal the LIRC decision to the Circuit Court, Court of Appeals and, ultimately, the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
