Hello again and thank you for your reply. To answer your initial question, it is the State Unemployment Commission, after considering all the evidence presented to them by both the employee and the employer, who makes the decision whether a UI claim is going to be approved. That includes the evaluation of the specific facts, including the duties of the work and any medical information provided by the claimant.
That said, if the claimant has evidence from their physician that shows their limitations, evidence that they requested a reasonable accommodation from their employer (HR or senior management), evidence that they could still perform the essential functions of the job with an accommodation, and then evidence of denial of that accommodation and evidence that they exhausted their remedies with the employer to resolve the issue, then they would typically be able to show that they quit for "good cause" attributable to the employer. That is the threshold necessary to qualify for unemployment benefits
So, for your appeal, you will want to try to put together facts that support that threshold, including medical reports or statements. I might suggest that you consider hiring an employment law
attorney who handles unemployment cases to assist you with the appeal since they have the unique experience with understanding the legal analysis that is used and the facts necessary to support that. If you cannot afford an attorney then, if you qualify, you might consider making an appointment with the local Legal Aid or Legal Services Office who can provide you with free legal assistance.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I would be glad to assist you further if I can.
