My unemployment appeal decision stated i am "affirmed." what does that mean?

This means that whatever the initial determination said is affirmed by the hearing decision or in other words the hearing officer agreed with the initial determination.

Face my accusor

I was told that it was because I didn't attend the first hearing. The second hearing, they were not present but the judge said it was ok. That's not fair because there should have been interaction. I tried to explain, was berated by the judge n told to say say yes or no without anything else. Yes or no did not always spply

What was the issue on the hearing notice for the second hearing .. Non Appearance?

Personally, I am of the mind if you really want things to be fair, you have a responsibility to meet fairness half way and pay attention to what will be discussed at the hearing and prepare for it.

What does a reversed decision mean?

What does it mean when the hearing decision is reversed?

Well, it's fairly self explanatory .. a reversal by means the higher authority has decided they believe the lower authority making the last determination or decision regarding the issue cited .. was wrong.

So the higher authority is correcting the error or mistake by reversing.
