I appeal an unemployment decision that included my last employer

This answer was rated:

I appeal an unemployment decision that included my last employer were I was a w2 employee and was told that my contract would end on 7/20/2011.

So, at my interview for this claim that stated that I was seeking self employment because I was Appling for both independent contract jobs as well as permanent positions as an employee. So, how can I win my appeal for this case?

The first appeal I won which determined that on my last employer was not Global Insight but Qualex Consulting. So, I won this half but when I contacted EDD this week the Appeal specialist said I had won only half and the appeal for the other half I would need
To appear before an appeals judge. So, even me winning my first appeal my benefits would not be paid until; I appeared before the second judge. As of yet my hearing for the second appear hearing has not been scheduled.

How can i prove that I;m activeky seeking work as an employee and not self employed as an IC, I;m SAS programmer so I normally get my jobs at on
You aren't recquired to only be looking for jobs as an employee and not an indpendent contractor, and I'm unssure why you would have been incorrectly informed that you are required to do so.

In order to receive unemployment benefits you need to be ready and available to work and actively seeking full-time employment, but you can sitll work as an independent contractor and collect unemployment benefits.

I suggest that you make a list of the employers that you've applied to and the dates that you've applied as proof that you are activley seeking work.
