Computing time for meeting deadlines in the hearing process.

(1) When counting days to find out when the time allowed or prescribed for an action under these rules or to meet a hearing deadline:
(a) Do not include the day of the action, notice, or order. For example, if an initial order is mailed on Tuesday and a party has twenty-one days from the date of mailing to request a review, count Wednesday as the first day. Similarly, if a DEL notice of denial, revocation, suspension, or modification of a license is received on a Wednesday and an individual has twenty-eight days from the date of receipt to file a request for an adjudicative proceeding, count Thursday as the first day.
(b) Count the last day of the period, unless the last day is a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday, in which case the deadline is the next business day.
(2) For periods of seven days or less, count only business days. For example, if you have seven days to respond to a review request that was mailed to you on Friday, May 10, the response period ends on Tuesday, May 21.
(3) For periods over seven days, count every day, including Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays.
(4) The deadline ends at 5:00 p.m. on the last day.
