    "If the appellant desires that the findings be corrected, the appellant must, within two weeks of the filing of the record in the Superior Court, file with the board a motion for correction of the findings. Calnan v. Administrator, Unemployment Compensation Act, supra, at 783-84, 686 A.2d 134. The court held that the timely filing of a motion for correction is a necessary prerequisite to a challenge to the board's decision. Id., at 785, 686 A.2d 134. Because the plaintiff failed to comply with that prerequisite, she could not challenge the board's findings on appeal to the Superior Court. Id."
