What happens after you file an appeal?

You will receive written notification that your appeal has been received.  After reviewing of the appeal and the case file evidence, the General Counsel will either grant or deny the appeal.  You will receive a written decision letter which: 1) grants your appeal and orders further investigation of specific factual issues or issuance of a complaint over a specific violation; or 2) denies your appeal because none of the grounds for granting an appeal have been established.
