Unemployment insurance is available to many workers who lost their jobs without their fault. Nevertheless, if you left your job and file a claim, there is a chance that your claim will be denied. Before you proceed to the Unemployment Office in your state, you have to determine the factors that could contribute to a denied claim.

Your unemployment benefits claim may be denied if you voluntarily quit your job without a good reason. To be considered as a good cause, you should have informed your employer or company regarding any problem so the company could have a chance to resolve it. Some reasons of quitting your job that could qualify include financial difficulties, family circumstances, if you were deceived regarding employment conditions, unhealthy working conditions, non-payment of your employer, offensive or abusive conduct by the employer, discrimination and transportation difficulties.

Another reason for a claim denial is when you are fired from your work due to misconduct or other legitimate reasons. Your employer will have to prove this in court when you make an appeal. Other reasons could include your refusal of a suitable work, not reporting your income tax while you are still working, incarcerated after a conviction, strike participation and unavailability to work. There are many instances when your unemployment claim will be denied. The best option for you is to file an appeal against it. You can consult with a lawyer for legal assistance and prepare yourself for hearing.
