“An EDD appeal letter is written for the purpose of asking the Employment Development Department to reconsider a decision denying an individual unemployment benefits. The letter typically includes evidence supporting the request for a reconsideration of the decision and may even include the name or names of potential witnesses who are willing to testify in a hearing on the individual’s behalf.” http://www.greatsampleresume.com/Appeal-Letters/EDD-Appeal-Letter.html
