I recently moved out of state and I keep being denied

Customer Question

Hi...I recently moved out of state and I keep being denied benefits for unemployment. What can I do to get the decision to be in my favor?
JA: Have you documented this or discussed it with HR?
Customer: yes I've done everything. My former employer is not denying it, its being denied by the board of labor I guess
JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?
Customer: It was full time
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I was there for 9 yrs. I left the state because the house I lived in was being sold. I have appealed and was denied, and I appealed again by writing a letter to the board of review, but i havent heard anything yet and its been over a month now since they informed me that they received the letter

Hello there --

-

Are they denying you because you left the state ? So they are claiming that you are not looking for work and you are not available for work in the area where you used to live?
