Closing Statements

Once testimony from both sides has been gathered, the Judge will give both sides the chance to make a closing statement.

  • The closing statement is not necessary since the decision will be based on the testimony already provided.
  • If you feel like you would like to make a closing note, the statement will need to be brief.

“Based on the evidence and testimony provided, we feel that the record will show that the claimant was discharged for misconduct in connection with the work (or quit without good cause in connection with the work) and therefore should be found disqualified for unemployment."
