Current through October 13, 2021

2. If, because of accident, sickness or other reasonable cause, a person fails to appear for a hearing scheduled by the Board or fails to request a continuance thereof, the party may, within a reasonable period, not to exceed 15 days after the date of the hearing, apply to the Secretary of the Board to reopen the proceedings and the Board, upon finding such cause sufficient and reasonable, will immediately fix a time and place for hearing and give such party notice thereof.
