Going to school had to quit my PART TIME job because it an hour away
(Eugene, Oregon, USA)
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?
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?
