thank you for your prompt answer ; my questions is

 

they appeal

 

1.- : they are asking for 1030/32 law should the employers reserve account be charge for any benefits paid to the claimant

2.- did the claimant coluntary leave his or her most recent employmnet without good cause . was the claimant discharge for misconduct connected with his or her most recent work

 

now previously they show the same things and the judge found that there is no miscounduct .

so i want to know do i need a lawyer for this hearing can they take my money away from me ?

It's up to the employer to show/prove misconduct.

 

Yes, money can be taken from you if, in the appeal, it's determined that you did commit misconduct.

 

It's up to you to decide whether or not you will need an attorney. An attorney, however will not know the facts of the case or your work environment like you do.

okey eventhough they presented the same papers and it was disregarded as a miscounduct , what else can they claim , ?

i have been an good employee with my job as a front end manager , also i am planning to take a couple of letters from other managers talking about my performance ? give your opininion will that stop them ?

The first judge disregarded it as misconduct. They are appealing that decision. They want a second bite at the apple on that issue.

 

This is really about the botXXXXX XXXXXne. They don't care about your performance or what other managers think about you. They just don't want to have to pay for your unemployment benefits. It's a money issue.

thank you for your answer so what should i do , i want to fight for my money , so do i get a lawyer or not? edd said that it is not necesary can i sent you the paper work that they are using or what they are going to show again to the judge .

please advise thank you

That is totally up to you as to whether or not you want to be assisted by an attorney. If you can afford to hire an attorney, there certainly is no harm in hiring one. If you are confident in your ability to think on your feet, call them out on inaccurate facts, etc., then you may find that you're more effect than what an attorney would be. Again, it's really a personal decision and I cannot speculate which is the best route for you.
