4146-5-06 Scheduling of hearings.

(A) Hearings held under these rules shall be scheduled as promptly as is administratively feasible. All hearings will initially be scheduled to be heard by telephone at a time determined by the review commission. In the scheduling of hearings, consideration will be given to the prompt disposition of appeals, the hours and days of the week established for conducting hearings, and the regular hearing sites within the state in the case of an in person hearing request.

(B) All evening hearings shall be scheduled to be heard by telephone. The party which requested an evening hearing may elect to have an in-person hearing if the party agrees: (1) to waive the right to an evening hearing and, (2) travel to a hearing site designated by the review commission.

(C) If a conflict concerning a request for an evening hearing and an in-person hearing arises, the commission shall schedule the hearing by telephone during evening hours.
