Thanks for the question.
You should be in good shape here. Your benefits are week to week - meaning that you need to reapply online each week. You're already approved, but you need to reapply next week and the week after.
Usually in New York, not filing on time is usually not an issue. They do want you to write them so they can investigate, but you already did that and were approved.
Now, if that's not the case, I'll point you in the right direction to file an appeal and/or go after the company that gave you wrong information.:

Next, if that doesn't work, look to take your company to arbitration for giving you false information - This is in liu of court and is much quicker and inexpensive. Arbitration is when a neutral arbitrator hears both sides of the case and then makes an unbiased decision based on the facts. Here's a link:

Unfortunately Nicole Smith has already made a determination based on her review.
Here's the process on how to get her review overriden:
Your next step is to request a hearing for your rights to benefits. A hearing is an informal trial held before an administrative law judge in a hearing room. Based on the evidence presented at the hearing the judge will decide whether you are entitled to unemployment insurance benefits. At the hearing, you, and the employer and any witnesses for both side may testify.
