Severn E. Lanier, Appeals Counsel, Board of Ap-

A three-member Board of Appeals, appointed
by the Secretary of Human Resources for a six-
year term, hears appeals on claims for unemploy-
ment insurance benefits, appeals that arise under
the taxing provisions of the Unemployment In-
surance Law, and other matters that require ap-
pellate adjudication, including appeals from the
hearing officers' decisions regarding Work
Incentive Program (WIN) registrants (Code 1957,
Art. 95A, secs. 7, 11).

Under the jurisdiction of the Board of Appeals
is the Appeals Division, which is comprised of of-
ficers who conduct hearings on all appeals filed
by claimants or employers from claims determi-
nations in the Department's local offices, and
who conduct hearings on disputed WIN deci-
sions. Claimants may appeal determinations dis-
qualifying them for benefits, or employers may
appeal determinations allowing benefits. An Ap-
peals Referee hears all such appeals. Any ag-
grieved party may further appeal to the Board of
Appeals. Final appellate recourse is to the Courts
of Maryland.

This Division supervises the Unemployment In-
surance Program carried out by the local offices.
The Unemployment Insurance Division also col-
lects contributions from employers covered by the
Maryland Unemployment Insurance Law, collects
quarterly wage information on covered employ-
ees, determines weekly benefit amounts in accor-
dance with this wage information, and issues ben-
efit checks to eligible claimants. It reviews benefit
payments to determine if any were improperly
made, recovers improper payments, pays benefits
to individuals who formerly worked in Maryland
but who reside in other states, and collects from
other states for payment of claims to Maryland
residents whose claims are against employers in
other states, as provided by a reciprocal interstate
agreement. The law provides for an experience
rating system under which employers who main-
tain steady employment are eligible for a reduc-
tion in the rate of contributions. All funds col-
lected under the law are deposited with the
Federal Treasury for the credit of the Unemploy-
ment Insurance Trust Fund of Maryland and
may be used only for the payment of benefits.
