I would need to review all of your documents, but what it sounds like is you were denied benefits after a phone interview, appealed and was awarded benefits. The other side apparently did not show up at the hearing. From what it sounds like, they are appealing to the UCAB, which is generally a written exercise. It could be determined that you were not entitled to benefits at that level, but it sounds like the facts are on you side. There are also rules related to failing to appear at hearing that could create a problem for the employer.
