How to File a Illinois Unemployment Appeal

If you feel like you need to file an unemployment appeal, you can do so by:

1. Go to the Illinois unemployment website and click on 'Appeal'.
2. Contact your unemployment counselor.
3. File a claim directly with the Illinois Board of Labor.
4. Contact a labor attorney.

What are some reason that you might need to file an unemployment appeal?

1. You feel like you did not receive the full amount of your unemployment benefits.
2. You feel like you were treated unfairly or discriminated against.
3. You feel like you were denied for unemployment benefits inappropriately.
4. You feel like your employer is trying to block you from receiving unemployment benefits when you are legitimately entitled and eligible to receive them.
5. You think that your unemployment benefits ran out too soon.
6. You believe that your unemployment application was incorrectly or unfairly judged or handled.

The staff of the Illinois unemployment offices are very diligent and professional counselors who genuinely want to help you, but sometimes mistakes are made. If you feel like something has gone wrong during your unemployment case that has affected the benefits that you receive, you can file a Illinois unemployment appeal in order to have your case reviewed. Do this as soon as possible. Do not let too much time pass, or it may be too late.

Hi.
I have a question. From november 2010 to semptember 2011 i was on unemployment, and since october 2011 i got new job. now. a week ago which was about january 12. 2012 i received from unemployment office letter saying that i was unavailable for work for period from july to semptember and that i have to return the money. my former employer claims that they called me to work many times during that time, which is not true. if it was true how come they did not notify the unemployment oficce earlier, but after couple months later. is there a time that employer has to inform unemployment about such things or employer can do it at any time even like 5 months later.
