1253A states as follows:
An unemployed individual is eligible to receive unemployment compensation benefits with respect to any week only if the director finds that: (a) A claim for benefits with respect to that week has been made in accordance with authorized regulations. (b) He or she has registered for work, and thereafter continued to report, at a public employment office or any other place as the director may approve. Either or both of the requirements of this subdivision may be waived or altered by authorized regulation as to partially employed individuals attached to regular jobs. (c) He or she was able to work and available for work for that week. (d) He has been unemployed for a waiting period of one week as defined in Section 1254, unless this waiting period has been waived pursuant to Section 8571 of the Government Code. (e) He or she conducted a search for suitable work in accordance with specific and reasonable instructions of a public employment office. (f) He or she participated as required by the director in reemployment activities, such as orientation and assessment if the individual has been identified pursuant to an automated profiling system as likely to exhaust regular unemployment benefits unless the individual has shown good cause for failure to participate.
If you can figure out which of the above provisions you have violated, you can file an appeal with the unemployment board citing facts specifically addressing the provision they believe you have violated.
Have they eluded to which of the provisions they believe you have violated in the above code?
Yes 1253a. The issue is that I went on disability and NOW want to reopen that claim. This is what a hearing judge told me to do after my lst 18 week claim expired. She told me to ask for an appeals specialist which I have about 9 times plus 5 faxes.
So I am assuming that you have not been granted one is that correct?
an appeals specialist to hear your case?
Were you denied one? or just not granted one?
I am going to opt out of this question in case another expert will be better able to assist you concerning this matter. Have a wonderful evening.
I dontknow what else. They only said in the denial that it was 1253A. But we have a confirmation of application from the day before disability started. There is no question the application was made and accepted, no idea what they are eluding to. Filing appeal but how can they deny a claim that was filed on time, with all info? But never collected on? ALL communications have been positive and in the 45 days have NEVER been told ineligible. They just keep needing more info on wages, etc.
