If the individual or a representative fails to appear for the scheduled hearing, the individual is found in default and the Administrative Hearing Officer will conduct the hearing in their absence. Any fines and penalties will still be levied on the individual. If the individual is a default due to illness or emergency, they will have 21 days to request hearing.
You should bring any documents or materials you want to present to the Administrative Hearing Officer as evidence. If English is not your primary language, you should arrange to have a translator present.
