Process for Appeal in Unemployment Cases
Do you want to appeal the EDD's decision to deny you benefits?
If you have recently filed for benefits under Unemployment Insurance, but had your claim
denied, there are still options. Our team at The Law Offices of Cyrus Mor may be able to help. With our lead attorney rated 7.6 Very Good by Avvo, you can trust us to provide you with the quality of service you deserve.
If you believe the decision to deny you benefits was in error in any way, we can assist you in going about the appeals process. In our state, the time limit for an appeal is only 20 calendar days, so it is crucial that you act quickly. There are First Level Appeals, and then later Second Level Appeals, in some circumstances. The processes for both are very similar. In either case, you will need to submit your request to the return address on the written decision which you are appealing. You will also need to detail the reasons for your appeal - i.e. why you believe that the decision was in error. The relevant parties will then contact you to let you know about your available options, such as an unemployment hearing or potentially the opportunity to submit new evidence, in the case of a Second Level Appeal.
