The EDD will make efforts to contact your last employer and ask why you are no longer employed. If the reasons do not agree, the interviewer will probably contact you again and ask more questions. An initial determination will be made based upon the information provided. If you are denied, it is probably because the interviewer finds the employer more credible. You can appeal the denial and will be given a hearing date where you can provide all the facts to an administrative law judge, who will then make an independent decision whether you are eligible.
