Reasons for Denial of Unemployment Benefits
You may think that there are many reasons for a denial of unemployment benefits.
Determinations and decisions that have denied unemployment benefits when you quit or were fired all have the same reasons.
There are a couple foundational reasons all others are based on.
1. You DID NOT lose your job through "No Fault of Your Own" .. per the statutes.
2. You are not able and available for work or actively seeking suitable work.
Ironically, many of you will lose benefits after you start collecting due to the reason listed in # 2.
Reversing a denied unemployment claim requires some thought and effort. It requires an understanding of what you need to show or prove that clears the way for the fault to be assigned to the employer.
Nothing could be simpler .. right? I beg to differ and the reason I differ is because I think that many, many more people would be collecting unemployment if they only had a lawyer. If you read what I have to say about finding a lawyer for an unemployment hearing .. you understand that it is a luxury that only an employer can afford.
Therefore, I believe the real problem we first need to overcome is the complacency we may feel.
Fighting for unemployment benefits is no time to be complacent. You must aggressively pursue benefits and you need to understand that you will be acting as your own legal representative.
We have been asked many questions which just want to know how to fight a denied claim and win the unemployment appeal hearing.
We think the best way is to develop a plan .. a strategy. to dig in and learn about this process that most of us never thought we'd have to go through.
Maybe now is the time to read what some others have asked about getting unemployment.
