Employer reason I voluntary quit does not coincide with what I stated
I have a question concerning my voluntary quit unemployment submission, when applying for unemployment benefits I stated in detail why believed I had good cause to leave my job.
I was denied benefits with the explanation of: It has been determined that you quit your job because your employer reprimanded you about your job performance.
Yes I was reprimanded on my job performance however that occurred 6 months before I quit, I am appealing the reasoning my former employer listed and have included a detailed explanation as to what lead me to finally quit and how I repeatedly asked for help and who I spoke with. I also included written documentation showing not only did I continue to do my job by offering suggestions on ways to help any newly hired employees but received a response from my regional manager thanking me for submitting my suggestion.
I was also named coach of the month the month prior to leaving my position stating I had shown my outstanding commitment to our team. I notated if I were so upset for being reprimanded why would I not have left when the reprimand was presented to me, much less continue to think of ways to improve the on boarding of new employees and dedicate myself completely to the job for the next 6 months.
Long story short, sorry for rambling my question is this, why would my former employer not try to dispute what I had notated in my claim but rather use the only thing that would have been listed in my personnel file?
I should be receiving my appeal hearing date within the week and want to be prepared. If the former employer only listed the above mentioned reason, should I prepare to show this specific item to be untrue or should I also be prepared to discuss the reason I believe I had good cause to quit?
Thank you so much for your time and feedback.
