Bartels Home Services, LLC v. Iowa Workforce Development

Appeal Number: 
Decision Date: 
Thursday, October 10, 2013

Bartels Home Services, LLC and Harness Nature, LLC each filed an appeal of decisions issued by Iowa Workforce Development (the Department). At hearing, the Department represented that it was withdrawing the September 27, 2012 decision that Harness Nature, LLC was appealing. Harness Nature, LLC acknowledged that the Department’s withdrawal of the decision renders the appeal moot. Accordingly, the Harness Nature, LLC appeal is dismissed based on the Department’s withdrawal of its decision.
In the September 25, 2012 decisions that Bartels Home Services, LLC appeals, the Department determined that an employer-employee relationship existed between Appellant Bartels Home Services, LLC and its workers from 2007 through 2011. The Department issued a decision dated June 3, 2013 which amended and superseded the decision of September 25, 2012. The parties agreed at hearing that the June 3, 2013 decision is currently the controlling decision and is therefore the subject of the appeal.
