Title 56 IDES RULES Part 2725
c) An Application which fails to meet the criteria in subsection (b)(1) thru (3) shall be ruled insufficient and the
Director shall serve notice of such ruling and the basis therefor upon the employer. The ruling shall be final and
conclusive unless the employer files, within 20 days of the date of mailing of the ruling, a written objection or a
revised Application for Revision of the Statement of Benefit Charges, specifically responding to the reasons the
original Application was ruled insufficient. The written objection or revised Application shall be reviewed and, if
sufficient, an order issued. An employer disagreeing with such order may appeal to a Director's Representative
under Subpart C of this Part if such appeal is taken within 20 days of the date of mailing of the order. If the written
objection or revised Application is still found to be insufficient, it shall again be ruled insufficient, and such ruling
shall be final and subject to review under the State's Administrative Review Law [735 ILCS 5].
1) Where an employer alleges that a claimant was not an unemployed individual under Section 239 of the Act
during a period when such claimant was paid benefits, no relief shall be available under Section 1508 of the
Act, but the matter shall be referred to the local office where the claimant last filed a claim for benefits for
investigation to which such employer shall be a party. If the claimant is determined ineligible, appropriate relief
will be granted to such employer under Section 706 of the Act.
2) Where an employer alleges that his Statement of Benefit Charges is incorrect because it is not the chargeable
employer pursuant to Section 1502.1 of the Act, such Application must contain a reference to and a copy of the
decision which reverses the claims adjudicator and holds that the employer is not the chargeable employer.
Unless the employer has filed a timely request for reconsideration to the decision that the claims adjudicator has
found it to be the chargeable employer, pursuant to 56 Ill. Adm. Code 2765.325, 2765.326 or 2765.329, such
employer shall not be entitled to a revision of its "Statement of Benefit Charges".
d) Upon receipt of a sufficient Application, the Application shall be ordered allowed or denied in whole or in part and
notice of such order stating the basis therefor shall be mailed to the employer. Such application will be allowed in
part and denied in part where the employer has contested multiple benefit charges but has made sufficient
allegations on some but not all. Such order shall become final and conclusive at the expiration of 20 days from the
date of mailing of such order, unless the employer shall have filed a Petition specifying its objections thereto.
e) Where the allegation in the Application is lack of notice of a determination or reconsidered determination and the
ineligibility of the claimant for a specific reason, such employer shall be sent either a copy of the original
determination or reconsidered determination, as may be applicable, and if the allegation of lack of notice proves to
be true, the period for filing a timely appeal under Section 800 of the Act and 56 Ill. Adm. Code 2720, Subpart C
shall begin from the date of mailing of the copy of the determination or reconsidered determination.
