3310.2910 CONSOLIDATION OF ISSUES AND NEW ISSUES.
Upon the request of a party or on the unemployment law judge's motion, the judge may consolidate for hearing issues involving the same parties. The unemployment law judge may take testimony and render a decision on issues not listed on the notice of hearing if each party is notified on the record, is advised of the right to object, and does not object. If a party objects, the unemployment law judge must:
continue the hearing to allow the party to prepare for consideration of the issue; or
direct the department to address the issue and send to the parties a determination by mail or electronic transmission.
