was fired from my job for not pulling a load(I'm a truck driver) to NY on a day i had ask off a week earlier. may 14th i was fired. had a telephone interview on may 29th. was denided benefits because of misconduct. i appealed the decision. had a appeal hearing on june 26th at u.i. office in elkton. i showed up but employer did not. but DLLR paper had employer as the appellant and not me. waved my rights and and had hearing. called 2 weeks later to find out that my hearing was null and void because of the mistake of employer being the appellant on the paperwork. have a phone interview on july 22nd now and still dont know if I'm getting benefits. the reason I took off work was to have a will made up for me and my wife, i was at a lawyer office. i dont think this falls under misconduct, nor do I think that my appeal hearing should of been cancelled. do i have a case here to get a lawyer or not? william beal (WORKED IN STATE OF MARYLAND LIVE IN DELAWARE)
