I FILED LATE ON MY APPEAL WHAT SHOULD I DO?

by Daniel
(Palm coast FL)

I was denied unemployment and didnt realize there was a 20 day limit to file and appeal. i filed 2 days late.. do you think i still have a chance at recieving unemployment? Do i need to have a good excuse as to why i filed late? if so what would be a good reason?





Yes Daniel, you need a good excuse .. considering the determination you appealed gave you the deadline for filing the appeal.

Here are a couple links to help you understand when you have a good excuse .. and Daniel, yours is not what I would call a good excuse.

This one is a Miami lawyers article on untimely appeals.

And this one is what Florida has to tell you.

If you want to submit your question here please do, but I will not answer it here because, it has nothing to do with the original question about filing a late appeal.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going!

How long does it take to receive word that your appeal has been granted? I want to use this site to be prepared to fight to the end! Paid into this for 50 years, first time unemployed and first time terminated! Corporations have a unique way of finding fault in your employment to move out the "ole guys", but this "ole guy is not rolling over.




Well, I'm not sure because the system is overloaded and my usual answer of 30 days does not seem to hold true anymore.

If you really want to use this site then please, please, understand that the very reason an employer fights unemployment is because you have not been paying into this system known as unemployment .. at least not directly.

The system is funded by employer paid taxes only.

I mention this only because so many people premise their argument on this incorrect assumption and that is just one way to wind up self-disqualifying yourself .. or filing an untimely appeal without good cause.

Other than this, I agree.

When the going gets tough, the responsible get going.
