by Gene Doyle, LMSW

State Fair Hearing regulations authorize the issuance of corrected decisions where there is a production error or an error of law or fact [18 NYCRR § 358-6.6(a)] and also authorize the reopening of previously closed Fair Hearing records to complete the records [18 NYCRR § 358-6.6(b)]. See the article on Corrected/Amended Fair Hearing Decisions.

The following statistics are taken from OTDA's Annual Reports for 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020.
