you have recently lost your job your first concern is usually "how will I pay my bills?" People rely on unemployment
compensation (UC) while they look for a new job. To then learn you have been denied unemployment benefits can cause
great anxiety and confusion. If your application for unemployment compensation benefits has been denied, you have the
right to file an appeal. Likewise, if your application for unemployment benefits has been approved your former employer
has the right to file an appeal. Your employer can allege that you were discharged for "willful misconduct"
or that you voluntarily resigned your position with the company. In either case, a hearing before a referee will usually
be scheduled shortly after the appeal is filed.
Appeal hearings usually involve one, or both,
of the following issues:
- Discharge. The employer has the burden of proving willful misconduct as
the reason for discharge.
- Voluntary quit. The employee has the burden of proving a necessary and compelling
reason for quitting.
