Unemployment Appeals FAQ




Most states have their unemployment appeals FAQs you can go to and find a whole lot of general answers.

But the questions and answers below,  are more about protecting your rights to due process to compel .. yes, even demand, that impartiality control the first level hearing .. if mandates and directives mean anything.

If you detect cynicism in my answers about winning unemployment appeals .. I'm guilty.  

I'm am  a cynic, but a hopeful one, as evidenced by the fact I haven't given up trying to convince employees they shouldn't go to the first hearing alone .. or at minimum learn how they should represent themselves pro se.

My hope is that you'll see why it's repetitive experience and  representation that employers use to win the majority of appeals .. so why wouldn't you benefit as well from expertise?

I know it can save tons of remorse when I'm asked a question about winning a second level appeal to a board of review.

But then everything in life comes down to the choices we do control .. even if when we don't admit to ourselves .. we were ultimately, the one in control of the circumstances that matter at an unemployment hearing.

How to Win An Unemployment Appeal

When denied unemployment benefits an unemployment claimant, or the former employee is free to use unemployment appeal process to finally get benefits.

But the most common reason for a tribunal unemployment hearing being scheduled is when you were allowed to collect unemployment and the employer decides to appeal to stop your benefits.

This means it's important to prepare for and attend a tribunal unemployment appeal hearing .. if you want to avoid having to repay unemployment benefits already received.

Either way, employers win unemployment appeal hearings on average of 75 percent of the time because so many would never think of not being professionally represented.

That employers feel representation is worth having .. is worth thinking about if you care about having a fairer chance of winning.

Every Story Needs a Title .. and it goes here.
