California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
Thank you for choosing Just Answer.
The initial decision on your unemployment application 9is not necessarily the last one. You have the ability to appeal the decision. Herr is a link to the application you must file to initiate the appeal. http://www.cuiab.ca.gov/Documents/forms/DE_1000M.pdf
You only have 20 days from the original letter denying. Mail your appeal to the return address shown on the original decision notice.
The Office of Appeals notifies individuals of the time and place of hearing at least 10 days in advance. An Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) conducts the hearing, giving employers and you a chance to present their evidence.
You should be prepared to discuss the evidence or lack thereof that was presented at the initial hearing. You should ask the employer to produce any documentation of evidence surrounding the alleged bad service. They should also produce the attendance record. If you have pay stubs showing your working hours accumulate, summarize and bring them to the hearing. This alone could defeat the credibility of your employer.

I knew that.
ok, so, I am appealing the edd decision to deny my unemployment claim by basically telling them that I was never later, unless ut was pre-approved by my supervisor/owner of the place. Im pretty sure my discharged occurred right after I requested vacation time. I have witnesses of my customer service abilities and they all disagree with with the owners accusations and say that nobody ever lasts more than a year at that place and people if often fired... i dont know besides asking for clock records and write ups about the alleged complaints about my customer service
how to appeal it and succeed since they made that up.
