How to File a Nevada Unemployment Appeal

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

There is no "Appeal" button to click on, in the website. There is no form that I can find that I can print out and fill out. It states you can file an appeal but give no information on how to do it.

How do you do it when there is no "Appeal" link or form you can download?

I filed a claim in February 2011, and was scheduled for a telephone interview. That interview never took place. I called the adjucator that was listed on the letter, and left messages several times over the next few days explaining that I never received my phone interview. Nobody ever called me back. I sent a fax to appeal the decision, and waited. I never heard from any one. I called to ask about my case, and was told that they never received the fax. I asked what I should do, and they said it was too late to do anything, that I should have pursued it right away. NOW... I was working part time and was let go. I tried to file unemployment and I am not eligible because of this previous claim. I called, and I explained what happend, and I was told that THEY DID RECEIVE THE FAX, that it was in my file. They also said that they did call me, that the phone rang several times and then hung up. Now because of this claim I am not eligible for benefits unless I can show pay stubs in a certain amount, which I cannot because the part time job was not enough income. It is now a case of he said/she said. But the adjucator knows, because she had several message left by me stating that I did not receive a call, and please call me back. On her message it states to leave a message and she will call you back and she never did. They also lied and told me that they never recieved my fax, when in fact they did and it has been in my file all this time. It is now over a year past and I want this resolved. It is their mistake and they need to justify it and make it right.

I was denied unemployment due to a UA coming up positive. I returned from vacation, which my boss approved 2 months prior but when the time came to go he didn't believe I should go. I went. Anyway, when I came back after 3 days at work I was called into the bosses office and he said someone was saying they thought I was drunk at work and I was to go take a UA. I said no problem and I was taken. The test came back positive for Ativan, benzodiazepines . I do have a prescription for Xanax, also a benzodiazepine. I was not able to pick mine up when we got back from vacation so I took one of my boyfriends, Ativan. They said since I did not have a prescription for that particular benzodiazepine I was terminated.
Also, in their employee handbook it states that anyone testing positive on a UA will be supspended until a second test was done and it was investigated. I was automatically termintated, via phone text by the way. No questions were even asked. I feel I was wrongly accused of something and denied unemployement wrongfully.
Do I stand a chance of winning an appeal?

I was let go from my employer on February 8th due to being late 2 days in a row. The next day i immediately filed for unemployment. I had my phone interview, and a couple weeks later i got my denial letter.
As soon as i recieved that i appealed that decision right away.
Now onto the point and my question. I had my appeal hearing on April 4th (this past thursday.) On saturday April 6th i recieved the letter stating that i had won my benefits (yay me!). This is now tuesday April 9th, and im wondering when will i recieve my payment? How long does it typically take? Will i recieve my payment this monday?

I got a notice of a phone hearing. I called and left a message that very same day (1 wk before the hearing date) that I wouldn't be able to make it because I had to work. They claim they never got the message.
I got a letter stating I did not answer when she tried to call for the phone hearing, so I must provide all of my work records for the two weeks that were in question regarding whether or not I should have received benefits, via fax immediately. I did so. They claim they never received the fax.
Now I get a letter saying that I deliberately and intentionally did not report income in order to obtain unemployment benefits unlawfully and fraudulently.
They claim that for the two weeks I worked, I answered "No" to the "even though you did not get paid, did you work?" question.
The letter states that I can file an appeal, but doesn't mention how I can go about doing that.
I am in no way guilty of what they are claiming. For both weeks, I answered yes to that question, and entered the amount of waged I earned in the box provided.
I was filing on-line, and think there must have been a glitch in the system or something.
Should I just send a letter with my statement along with copies of the fax I sent, or what?
I feel like I'm spinning my wheels here.
