My employer cut my hours when I returned from maternity leave and I was denied unemployment for quitting without good cause. Should I appeal?
I was on maternity leave called my boss for my schedule and he said the buisness is slow and he is keeping the temp and can only give me 8hrs a week. I did not accept that offer and filed for umemplyment. I was denied saying it was not a drastic cut from my full time hrs and or misconduct. There is no misconduct and i worked 34-36 hrs a wk before i left. I want to appeal but i don't know if it's worth it. Also will my former boss be at the hearing for appeal? Oviously from the phone interview edd believed my former boss.What do you think do i have a chance of fixing this by calling him a lier. It's my word against his about the hours he offered me, there is no written or signed papers.
It's worth the appeal .. especially if you have paystubs or subpoena payroll records to prove the substantial change in working conditions .. not to mention that if you were on FMLA the employer may be in violation of FMLA
and you should talk to an attorney about that as well
