There are different reasons why some unemployment compensation claims are denied. To find out if your claim will be approved or not, it is important to understand the facts surrounding the unemployment eligibility denial. Each state has its unemployment compensation program, so it is important to review certain requirements applicable in your state.

A benefit could be denied due to ineligible position. Only those whose former employers have paid unemployment taxes for them could receive compensation. Those people who were working as independent contractors or self-employed could not avail of the benefits. Another reason for denying is insufficient wages. In order to qualify, you have to earn ample wages during a specific time frame or known as the base period before you became unemployed.

Voluntary quitting from the job is another reason for denying your claims. Furthermore, if the reason you lost your job is due to misconduct, you will not qualify to receive unemployment insurance. Misconduct could mean tardiness, theft, failure to follow instructions, endangering the life of fellow workers and problematic deeds. In some states, the severity of the action leads to termination. You will also not qualify for benefits if the reason for unemployment is labor dispute. You should be actively looking for a job and accept a job in order to get your benefits.
