8.04: Appeal of a Stop Work Order
Upon written request to the DIA, an employer who is aggrieved by the issuance of a SWO may appeal said order on its merits. A hearing will be granted per M.G.L. c. 152, § 25C (2). The appeal must be filed with the DIA no later than ten days from the date the SWO was served. The aggrieved employer may, at the time of the hearing, provide documents or other materials that support its position. An employer that appeals a SWO may continue to operate their business pending a final agency disposition.
