Unemployment benefits or claims are payments for people who lost their jobs without their fault. When an unemployment claim is denied, you are given the right to file an appeal. However, before you do, it is necessary to determine the factors that may lead to the disqualification of your unemployment claims.

The normal grounds of denying an unemployment claim is misconduct and voluntarily quit. Your claim could be denied if you are accused of misconduct in your work. A misconduct in general includes deliberate violation of a company’s rules, intentional disregard of your role s an employee and wilful disregard of the employer’s interest. In order to oppose a charge of misconduct, you must present witnessed to prove that your employer’s allegation does not deserve a claim discharge. You could also present notes, workbooks, journals, personnel manuals, doctor’s reports and more.

If the reason for denying the claim is voluntary quit, you must deny that you quit your job if it is not the case. You must present facts that you were terminated by your employer or had a strong reason of quitting. Some evidences you can present include letters or notices of termination, a witness or witnesses to prove they saw or heard your employer discharging you or else a supervisor who mistreated you. A doctor’s statement or report should also be presented to show that your health was negatively affected by the work and you quit your job due to doctor’s recommendation. Furthermore, you can also submit reports indicating that your work was unhealthy and dangerous. Other grounds could include failure to make an ample job search or refusal to accept a job.
