I was denied benefits "because I broke a reasonable employer rule".


I plan to appeal. The question I have is-- because I am the one appealing, am I the one that has the burden of proof of showing this was not misconduct, or is the burden still on the employer?

thank you


Since you were fired and subsequently denied unemployment benefits .. you can assume that the state believes right now that the employer did prove THEIR burden that you were fired with good cause.

Since you will be the appellant, your job at that hearing is to present information in the form of testimony and documents, including having witnesses appear, to support your case.

Your information has one goal. And that is to punch holes in the employer's case to the point that they are unable to "SUSTAIN" their burden of proof.
