School Appealing my unemployment claim
by Nikki Turpin
I'm a Special Education Aide. We are hired Per Diem. We are scheduled 30 hours a week but during school holidays we are not paid. The aides do not pay into a union. For Winter break and Spring Break I reopened my previous claim. I told the representative I work for Blank School, we don't get paid during said break. The representative said ok, took all the information and then I received a check. Yesterday I received a letter saying that my school district is appealing the claim. Do they have a right to tell me I can't claim even though I'm willing to and can work but they aren't open?
Of course they have the right to appeal. An interested party can appeal any determination or decision they within the deadline given. The employer, the claimant (you) and even the state may appeal.
Do you have the appeal in hand? Does it say anything about "reasonable assurance"?
