FAQ: May I appeal the denial of unemployment benefits?
Yes. After your initial interview with the Claims Telecenter, you will receive a written notice by mail that will allow or deny your unemployment benefits. This written notice is called the determination letter. If you have been denied benefits, you have the right to appeal. If you have been allowed benefits, your former employer has the same right to appeal. If either you or your employer appeals, you will have a hearing before an administrative law judge.
