    Do you mean that this was an interview for a higher position within the HSE (if you are working for them)?
    Or are you asking about an interview to determine your means so you can recieve benefits/wefare?

    You can appeal both.

    If it is a job interview, I think they will reconvene the panel to investigate the complaint.

    Depends on your reasons as to why you think they failed you.. Are they reasonable or just plucked out of thin air?

    I've gone against the decision of one interview in my life. Simply because they chose to hold my physical shakes as a reason not to hire me. Since it was a job dealing directly with customers they felt that since I had permanent "shakes", it would make people uncomfortable. However, I had a number of years experience in such a role, with plenty of references to show otherwise. In the end, I pushed for them to state a valid reason, or I would hit them with discrimination. I got the job, and was pretty successful at it for them.

    But you have to be realistic, and consider the reasons why you might not have succeeded. Are their reasons valid, and fair?
