Can employer enter more documents into evidence for appeal or does she have to stick with what she used to fight the initial claims hearing?
In NJ my boss told UI that I was fired for misconduct. (When she fired me she told me it was because our personalities clashed.) I was awarded my benefits during my initial claims hearing in which my employer submitted 25 pages of "evidence" against me. These pages were basically 3 mistakes she claimed that I made that cost her money.
First, I didn't make all of the mistakes, only one of them was a mistake I made and it was during the first week that I worked for her which I took responsibility for. Second, One of the issues wasn't even a mistake, rather a glitch in the email system that she said she was going to have fixed but never did. Another was an email I supposably sent to the wrong person. It wasn't brought to my attention while I worked for her, and both she and other employees had access to send and receive emails using my name so it could have been anyone that made the mistake.
I can't really prove that I didn't make ALL of the mistakes because I don't have access to the email account anymore. Even if I had made all of them, these issues didn't constitute the definition of misconduct as given by the NJDOL. There was no willful or deliberate viloation of rules and regulations that she has a right to expect of an employee therefore I was granted my benefits. Now she is appealing the decision.
Is she allowed to enter new "evidence" into the appeals hearing that she didn't enter into the claims examination hearing? She has a computer hacker on her payroll and since she has a history of "bending information" I'm afraid she will have him create new documents with old dates on them to make it look like it was willful misconduct on my part.
Yes, she is allowed to enter additional documents for the hearing, but you can object to the admittance of the documents .. not that it would do any good, but your objection is now on the record .. in case of need for an appeal to the board of review.
I cannot even entertain what you are speculating about as far as the lengths you think she might go to .. but just in the brief little bit of information you gave me .. I'm wondering what good it do her since she has already submitted documents which were apparently dated after you were terminated.
I would ask her why now for the hearing .. why didn't she submit them at the time of her initial protest along with the other 25 documents?
Or are you talking about her having the dates changed on documents she has already submitted to the state claim department. You can access that file if I am not mistaken. Use it.
Bending the truth is one thing .. breaking laws is quite another and you are speculating that she will break laws to stop you from collecting UI benefits?
That .. would be nuts for her to do.
