After the opening statement, the hearing officer will hear statements from
each side in turn, one witness at a time. The hearing officer will
question, then allow each witness to add any relevant information.
If the witness has a primary representative, the representative will
be able to question the witness. The other side will then be able
to question the witness. The hearing will follow this procedure until
everyone has spoken. The hearing officer will discuss any documents
that were sent in by the two sides or that are in the file at the
correct time. The documents will be admitted into evidence after ruling
on any objections that either side might have to the documents.
The hearing officer will then let both sides add any new testimony before
ending the hearing.
