I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

You have a right to appeal the decision within 15 days after it's made. If the fifteenth day falls on a holiday or weekend, you get until the next day. The appeal goes to a referee, who will schedule a hearing. Your former employer gets notice of the hearing, and you'll both go to present your side of the story. Look at their reasons for denying you so you can target your appeal to convincing them a mistake was made on that decision.

You can file the appeal by mail, fax, and online. This site has instructions, along with the forms you'll need.
