I worked at the place for 11 years & the way he fired me. Cant get unemployment

unemployed_personQ) I file my weekly certification every week & the employer I worked for has made it impossible for me to get unemployment by saying things about me that is not true. I worked at the place for 11 years & the way he fired me was by a phone call. He told me that he no longer needed my services & that he appreciated all the work I did for him. I worked other employees shifts that did not show up plus my shift as well. I also worked my shift & stayed until 11 pm on account someone either called in or didn’t show. This is not right. SO if i need to do a hearing how do I go about it?

A) I understand that you are in a difficult situation. You were fired from your job after 11 years of service, and your employer has made it difficult for you to collect unemployment benefits.

I am not able to provide legal advice, but I can offer some general suggestions.

First, you should contact your state’s unemployment office to find out how to appeal the decision to deny your benefits. You may be able to request a hearing, where you will have the opportunity to present your case to an administrative law judge.

Second, you should consider talking to a lawyer about your situation. A lawyer may be able to help you understand your legal rights and options, and may be able to represent you in an appeal of the decision to deny your benefits.

Here are some additional tips for appealing a denial of unemployment benefits:

  • File your appeal as soon as possible. The deadline for filing an appeal varies from state to state, so be sure to check with your state’s unemployment office.
  • Be sure to include all of the relevant information in your appeal. This includes the reason you were fired, the evidence that supports your claim, and any witnesses who can testify on your behalf.
  • Be prepared to answer questions from the administrative law judge. The judge will want to know why you believe you were wrongfully terminated, and they will want to see evidence to support your claim.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
