In order for us to help you get your benefits from the EDD, you first need to be denied the right to receive your unemployment insurance. This will occur after your phone eligibility interview takes place with the EDD phone interviewer. Your interviewer, not your employer, will determine whether to approve or deny your claim. If you claim is denied, you will receive a Notice of Determination from the EDD which will indicate why your claim was denied. Most people are typically denied based on California Unemployment Insurance Code Section 1256. Nonetheless, an appeal form will be included with your Notice of Determination.
Our Riverside unemployment lawyer has recovered benefits for numerous clients throughout the Inland Empire.
On your appeal form, you will be asked to provide a reason for why you want to file an appeal. It is absolutely crucial to understand that you should not provide detailed information about your separation on the appeal form. Similarly, you should not attach a detailed letter outlining the reasons for why you feel your claim should be approved. Rather, the appeal form should only be used as a means for acquiring a hearing. We usually advise writing a general sentence on your form such as “I would like to request a hearing”.
Once your request for appeal is received, you will eventually receive a Notice of Hearing from the California Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board (CUIAB). If you live in Riverside, your hearing will likely be taking place at the Inland Office of Appeals in Rancho Cucamonga.
You should contact our office once you receive your Notice of Hearing which is when we typically begin our representation process.
Regardless of whether or not you bring a representative to your hearing, you will be forced to answer questions from the judge and your employer’s representative. Thus, you need to be properly prepared for what to say and expect at your hearing.
Our unemployment attorney in Riverside provides appeals representation with proven results. We meet with each one of our clients prior to their appeal hearings, so we can properly assess the facts of your case and subsequently prepare you for the questions who will be receiving at your hearing. Remember, once you go to your unemployment appeal hearing, you cannot again request another hearing if you lose.
During your initial consultation with our firm, we will be able to assess the strengths and potential weaknesses of your case. This allows us to give you honest and helpful feedback about what to expect at the outset.
