I had my Unemployment benefits
denied for an issue of NRS 612.434 "between terms" issue for educators.
JA: Have you documented this or discussed it with HR?
Customer: It was adjudicated with the Carson UIB office and they approved the payments for the 3 weeks in question and paid me on 8/17/17 based on that decision. After that, (I had to file an appeal) the appeal office denied that claim and is asking for repayment of $3,700 when it had already been approved and paid. In addition the appeal office included repayment of the money paid during the start of the college term for which I am still unemployed which had also been adjudicated by Carson UIB office. The problem is that the UIB office went by my college schedue with 4 terms and the subsequent term followed the 3 weeks. So with no contract I was unemployed and the Carson adjudicator ruled in my favor. The appeals office used the rule for district wide schools which begin the Fall, and he said there was a strong possibility to return. The law says "next" term. I am still unemployed. Can they adjudicate something twice. Isn't there a law which says something can not be adjudicated over.
JA: Is the employment agreement "at will
," union, full time or part time?
Customer: Part time, I am a adjunct Professor and paid only when they give me a contract (based on their class enrollment needs.)
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: the law says "next term or academic year" Does the "or" mean that "in the event there is no term" they can arbitrarily use academic year? This seems to be what the Appeal officer did when he denied me and asked for repayment. ???Does that law protect my situation as a college term??? AND ???If they made the mistake, Do I have to pay money back that was awarded to me.???
