After receiving a notice denying your unemployment claims, you can make an appeal and request for a hearing before an administrative law judge. Make sure that you prepare for the hearing even if you have not received a hearing date yet. Gather all the necessary documents to prove your claim ahead of time.

The procedure of the hearing will begin once the judge has everyone in person at the hearing or on the phone. The judge will ask questions to the employer or the representative and the ex-employee. The documents received from the employer and employee will be outlined by the judge. The judge will give you a chance to make additional comments and point out specific details that you feel was not covered during the testimony.

The chances of winning an appeal will be based on factors such as conduct during the hearing, documents sent to the judge and the testimony of the witnesses. The judge does not consider undocumented issues but on paper trail which includes verbal and written warnings. It is of vital importance to stick to the facts and do not make false statements. Take this opportunity to present your evidence and witnesses to support your case. Furthermore, you will also be given a chance to cross-examine your former boss and his or her witnesses.
