What does it mean when the appeals decision is reversed?

What does it mean when the appeals decision is reversed?


My husband was denied when he first filed. We appealed and that too was denied. Since my husband was fired for a stupid reason, we decided to appeal that decision as well. Now he gets a letter stating that the decision of the appeals referee was reversed. But, it also says that he is disqualified for 12 weeks. Does this mean that he won the appeal but will be penalized for 12 weeks?



Hi,

North Carolina has some weird rules about misconduct disqualifications. The following is directly from DOLETA's 2010 chartbook and the footnote for NC misconduct disqualifications.

In NC, the agency may reduce permanent disqualification to time certain, but not less than 5 weeks; when permanent disqualification changed to time certain, benefits are reduced by an amount equal to the number of weeks of disqualification x WBA. Also, an individual will be disqualified for substantial fault on the part of the claimant that is connected with work but not rising to the level of misconduct. The
disqualification will vary from 4-13 weeks depending on the circumstances.


So, I guess I would have to ask you what the referee decision imposed first that it was called a reversal. A reversal usually means "benefits allowed" if one had been denied, but what you are describing sounds more like the decision was amended to a "time certain".

But then I can't read the decisions .. so I'm guessing.

They Reversed the previous ruling
by: Tiffany

Well I'm from Texas, I worked for a home healthcare agency. I went to work one morning and my patient died,i immediately reported his death. Two days later I contacted my company and asked if they had another patient,they said yes but the issue was the patient lived 40mins away from where I lived,and the patient had transportation needs I couldn't provide(my license suspended) so I had to decline, well I filed unemployment,they got angry and respond to TWC stating "I quit"4weeks passed of me and the employer,going back and forth with the caseworker.. outcome..I was denied due to "refusing a offer" also"quitting" I appealed" well..my company never called in,and I gave my side,i just looked on TWC and under "summary of appeal" it states "we reverse the prior ruling". Does that mean I won?

Sounds like you won to me .. Tiffany inTexas

If you appealed the previous ruling and that ruling had denied benefits, then yes, I would think a reversal in your case would mean you won and should now be allowed to collect benefits, going forward and for all the weeks you previous claimed benefits while denied.
