What Can I Do If I Am Denied Unemployment Benefits?

If you disagree with the determination, you may file an appeal. Your appeal rights and time limits for filing an appeal are explained on each determination. You will receive a notice telling you when your appeal hearing will be held. At the hearing you will be given an opportunity to present facts you believe are important to your case. If witnesses are needed to help present your case you must arrange, in advance, for them to participate.

If you appeal, you must continue to file your claim as usual for each week you are unemployed. Even though an appeal decision may find you eligible for benefits, you will not be paid for any week for which you have not filed a claim.

If you are found eligible for benefits, your employer may disagree and file an appeal. An employer's appeal does not cause your benefits to stop. If the employer wins the appeal, however, the benefits you have been paid will be considered an overpayment.
