How do you file a written appeal to the georgia department of labor if they make a decision denying a waiver of overpmt of u/e?

Asked over 5 years ago - Macon, GA

I was terminated from a job. The DOL paid me unemployment benefits for months, my former employer appealed and after the hearing the dol ruled in my employer's favor and ordered me to pay back benefits. I do not have any current employment and the dol denied my request for waiver of overpayment. The letter states I can exercise my right to appeal. Is this something that has to be done in court or does this mean I have to send in a written letter to the department of labor?

    Because this matter is so important you should really get a lawyer. An appeal can be tricky.

    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. I am in Chicago. I do not practice in Macon.
