1. What if my employer protests my claim?
If your former employer contests your eligibility for unemployment benefits, your entitlement to benefits will be in question and the issue of eligibility on the claim will need to be resolved.  Before a determination is made on the issue, you and the employer will be contacted to provide statements and information regarding the issue.


2.What if my employer appeals an initial determination in which I have been approved for benefits?
Unless your eligibility is overturned during the appeals process, you will continue to receive benefits, if otherwise eligible. Therefore, if you are paid benefits and an appealed determination or decision is reversed and you are disqualified, your benefits will stop.  Following the entire appeals process, if you are disqualified, you may be required to repay benefits that you have received.


3.How do I appeal my claim if I am disqualified from receiving Unemployment Insurance benefits?
If you wish to appeal your disqualification, you may request a hearing using UI Online or completing the request included with the disqualification notice.  Your appeal must be submitted within 10 calendar days of the date on the Notice of Disqualification.  

 

4. What if I am overpaid?
If you receive benefits to which you were not entitled, you will have an “overpayment.” When you are determined to be overpaid you will be asked to repay the overpaid amount to DUA.  As with other determinations on your claim, you will have the right to appeal your overpayment determination.
