Going to school had to quit my PART TIME job because it an hour away

I was denied benifits because I am in school, but they allowed benefits for the reason I quit the job, is it possible to appeal the decision?






Hi Steven,

Any determination can be appealed and you will get a hearing, but the point is to show why the department made a wrong initial determination.

If they allowed benefits because the distance or commute was so great that that allowed a quit with good cause .. can I assume the reason they are denying benefits is because they also believe you are not "able and available or looking for work?

The USDOL's chartbook says Oregon doesn't have a problem with school attendance while collecting benefits provided school attendance does
not interfere with availability to seek and accept suitable work.

Is this why they denied the benefits?

Yes they say it is because i am not available to look for work, but as far as im concerned i have plenty of time to look for work and I told the arbitrator that i would quit school for a full time job so..... Im not really sure why I have recieved the denile letter ???



Then yes, appeal.
