Unemployment claims are payments made to people who become unemployed through no fault of theirs. When your unemployment claim is denied, you have the right to file for an appeal.

The usual grounds for denying unemployment claims are voluntary quit and misconduct. Your claim may be denied if you are accused of misconduct related to your work.

You can present workbooks, notes, personnel manuals, journals, doctor’s reports and many more.
