immovable conflict, or unavailability of key witnesses.
(b) If a hearing is conducted or a decision
is reached in an administrative hearing in the absence of a party, or if a

Motions to reconsider shall not be granted except when the petitioner can show
that the reasons for his failure to appear were due to an emergency, such as an
urgent medical issue or severe weather.
