What are my chances of winning appeal after being denied unemployment?
my old manager was fired and then my attendance records were reviewed and days that he had excused were counted against me which eventually led to me being put on a final warning for attendance when I stayed home to deal with legal matters when my car was stolen. The last thing happened when my daughter appeared sick one morning and fearful of being fired I took her to school hoping to be able to take her to after hours clinic later that day. The childcare called when the director observed my daughter and told my job that my daughter needed to be picked up because it looked like she had pinkeye. One of the managers told me to go ahead but later that day i received a call from my supervisor telling me that that was my last day at the company for attendance reasons. i was denied benefits because they said they warned me and i didnt listen but i dont agree because i made the attempt to work that day. I worked there for over 5 years. do i have a case?

I'd say you do. you have to take care of your child first. and if your manager told you to go, then how can they fire you for leaving?

How many days have you been out? I know they mess with people's unemployment if you are out a certain number of days.

When you filed for unemployment, what reason did you give as no longer being with the company?


Was the warning in writing? On record?

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

You might have a case, but do you really want to work for a bunch of butt-heads who count it against you that you need to care for your child?
How about working for people who don't stand behind their employees' decisions? So what if they fired him, they didn't let you know that your attendance would be called into question until AFTER they fired him.
Take a good hard look at the situation. Were you up for a promotion? Were you able to be replaced by someone who would work for less money?
I seriously doubt that your attendance was the *real* reason for you being downsized. Probably you were a threat to one of the incompetent good 'ol boys.
Do you keep a journal? If they were involved in questionable practices and you have a record of it, that's admissable in court. If you were to make a copy of that evidence and point out to the cretin in charge that he's messing with the wrong whistleblower (assuming you have evidence of wrongdoing), he might make you an offer for a generous parting gift, in exchange for your silence.
Five years is a long time, but I'll bet you can find a new job where the management has more integrity.
Best wishes and kisses for your little daughter.

Check with the employment law in your state. They have a handout on how to file an appeal.

To file an appeal is like going to court. You need to find your old manager and get him to come to your hearing. Any witnesses would not hurt either. If you file an appeal they will send a letter to your ex employer and they will have to send a representative for the hearing. In some cases the employer will do nothing and like court if they don't show up you will win your case. You need to get a copy of the employee handbook and find the section about attendance and do some research. We have had cases where the employee would even bring an attorney in, but it does get expensive from there. You can do it yourself just get the witness, you can even have your supervisor subpoenaed. Just get your ducks in a row, so to speak. You can win your case.
