If, after served with notice in compliance with §9.11 of this title (relating to Notice and Initiation of Proceedings), a party fails to attend a hearing, the administrative law judge may proceed in that party's absence and, where appropriate, may issue a proposal for decision against that party. The proposal for decision shall be served upon the defaulting party and the party will be afforded the opportunity to contest the law as stated in the proposal for decision, but shall be deemed to have waived the right to contest the evidence, cross-examine the witnesses, and present an affirmative case or defense.
