How can I get help to file an appeal on a denied unemployment claim?

Hatfield, PA |

I voluntarily quit my job because the income and compensation package I was told I could make was not possible to reach. My schedule required I work 55 hours a week, so therefore I had to leave to avoid making a long-term commitment that would have put me further in debt. I did approach my employer (I had an excellent annual review, by the way), and the concessions he offered were minimal. When he realized I wasn't going to stay, he asked me to resign so I could pursue other opportunities. The compensation may not be all the companies fault, as it was in construction sales and the industry is off, but I needed to make a move or go broke.

    The appellate record needs to be examined because what is in the record already sets the stage for what can be done next. The answer to your question may take several hours of legal research.

    No one can know what the record is in the case because online we cannot see your documents. You need a lawyer. Check with a lawyer in your locale to discuss more of the details.

    Good luck to you.
