Appeals Process if you are denied

If you are denied unemployment insurance after the hearing, you may wish hire an attorney to help guide you through the appeals process. If you feel the decision was incorrect, or disagree with the judge’s determination, you must file a written appeal, typically within a short time period, after you receive the decision. Your appeal letter should include your name, address, social security number, and case number, and should include a statement that you are requesting an appeal. Keep in mind, however, that the appeals process can be timely and cost-consuming, depending on the circumstances of your case, and you must decide whether going through an appeal is worth it to you.

If you are overwhelmed with the employment dispute, or need further advice concerning the unemployment insurance appeals process, contact an attorney to help you in your particular situation.
