I worked for a temp company for 10 months and put in my two

I worked for a temp company for 10 months and put in my two weeks notice to accept a new different position with another temp company for a better job opportunity, however, after one week of employment with the new temp company for my long-term, temp to hire position, my temp company calls me after work on Friday and tells me the company that I was working for has decided not to move forward with my position, due to apparently they felt I wasn't catching on to the position quick enough. So, I filed for unemployment about 3 weeks ago and just received notice that my unemployment has been denied due to:In accordance with Section 4141.01(R)(2) of the Ohio Revised Code, the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services has DISALLOWED the claimant's application for unemployment compensation benefits dated 03/10/2017 due to a disqualifying separation from employment or other reasons described in the following text:An issue regarding the claimant's reason for separation, affecting benefits beginning on 03/10/2017, was adjudicated as follows. In accordance with Section 4141.29 of the Ohio Revised Code this agency finds that the claimant is totally unemployedfrom AEROTEK, INC. due to a lack of work.The claimant quit INNOSOURCE, INC. on 03/03/2017, to accept other employment. Section 4141.291(A)(2), Ohio Revised Code, allows removal of the disqualification imposed for this type of separation under Section 4141.29(D)(2)(a), ORC, if the new work was covered by an unemployment compensation law and the claimant: either obtained new work while still employed or started the new work within seven calendar days after the last day of employment with the prior employer; worked three weeks; and earned wages of one and one-half times his/her average weekly wage or $180.00, whichever was less. The claimant did not meet these requalifying requirements because he/she did not work in three weeks and earn one and one-half times his/her average weekly wages or $180, whichever is less, in the new employment. Therefore, no benefits will be paid until the claimant obtains employment subject to an unemployment compensation law, works six weeks, earns wages of $1482, and is otherwise eligible.The employment agreement required the claimant to contact the temporary agency following the completion of each work assignment. However, the employer has failed to establish that suitable work was available to the claimant from the temporary agency for each week claimed beginning on . Claimant has met the requirement of Section 4141.29(A)(5),Ohio Revised Code.However, I did work a full 40 hour week with the new temp company and received a check for the one week that I worked which well exceeded the $180.00 amount described in this notice if I'm reading this notice correctly? Is that what this notice is saying and therefore is this a mistake, or is it saying that I needed to work three weeks AND earn at least $180.00? It says I can file an appeal. Can you please advise?
