People who lost their jobs without their fault can benefit from unemployment claims. Nonetheless, there are instances when your unemployment benefits claim could be denied. You should be aware of the factors that could cause your unemployment benefit application to be denied.

Unemployment benefits could be denied in the event that you quit your job without a valid reason or you quit voluntarily. One good reason for quitting a job includes informing your employer regarding a problem to give him or her a chance to resolve it. Other reasons for giving up a job that qualifies include financial difficulties, family circumstances, unfair employment conditions, unhealthy working environment, offensive or abusive employer conduct, employer non-payment, transportation hardships and discrimination.

Another factor for denying unemployment claim is when you are fired due to misconduct and other legitimate causes. However, this has to be proven in court by your previous employer. Other reasons for denial may include failure to report income tax, refusal of a suitable job, joining in strike, imprisonment after conviction and unavailability to work. The best option for you would be to file for an appeal against the decision made. You could consult a lawyer to help you legally and you have to prepare for a hearing.
