Can the reason my claim was denied be changed?
During my initial phone interview with the DOL I was told that my employer said I voluntarily quit. Which I did not. Then I got a phone call from the DOL that I needed to drive down to their office to read what was written. The paperwork still indicated that I quit so I wrote a rebuttal. Then I got notification that the reason was changed to willful misconduct by the examiner can they do this?? I thought that they had to be unbiased.
Ah .. what do you mean .. a notice? Are you talking about the determination?
The examiner or adjudicator is suppose to find out what really happened and make the determination accordingly.
Apparently, if you did not quit, your rebuttal was that you were fired?
So what's the problem.
Sounds like maybe you were forced to quit or be fired.
Irregardless of how the employer responded .. the adjudicator may first have to determine what type of separation occurred and adjudicate appropriately for what the situation calls for.
