Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
After showing plenty of evidence in a hearing for unemployment, the judge ruled against me and stated that "the employer did not assert that the verbal warning given the claimant in an way served to notify the claimant that his job was at risk.". He awarded the claimant the case stating he was terminated due to a lack of work. He also rejected my evidence that showed our abundance of work (invoices and contracts). Is asking for a new judge for the appeal ok to do?
