How to File a Michigan Unemployment Appeal

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

1. Go to the Michigan unemployment website and click on 'Appeal'.
2. Contact your unemployment counselor.
3. File a claim directly with the Michigan 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 Michigan 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 Michigan 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.

Ok long story short. I got approved for unemployment and my employer but it got denied due to the fact that I answered a question wrong. The question asked if I am able to rearrange my school schdule for full time work- I stated no. In reality I CAN, how can I go about fixing this issue?

I was laid off from my job in Sept 2012, and approved for unemployment by my employer. Rec'd my first check, then when the 2nd was scheduled, rec'd a notice U/E was being stopped because I answered "yes" under the original app that I was attending school. I have been taking on line classes for 4 years (while working) and have two classes to finish my degree. Filed an appeal, and am still waiting for an answer. Stated I did not complete a questionare about school; but I never received one. My appeal was sent in Oct 13; today is December 28; still waiting. I am hoping the decision is reversed and checks resume, but getting desperate. Meantime, rent to be paid, groceries are scarce and utilities are calling for payment. We did not have Christmas gift exchange.
I am available fro full time work, as online classes can be taken anytime. Also mark "Yes" under available for work when I call Marvin each week.
