How to File a Ohio Unemployment Appeal

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

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

I live in Ohio, On Nov. 20 of 2012 I was laid off for lack of work. I was denied benefits for my first week because I misunderstood the process of opening a claim and claiming the week. I opened my claim on Sunday Nov. 25 and also claimed the week. I should have opened my claim no later than Saturday the 24, and then claimed the week on Sunday the 25. I appealed to the redetermination department, and was denied. I then appealed again and had a telephone hearing, which I was also denied. I was looking for a little advice on following my next appeal, to the UCRC, my only defense has been, my misunderstandin g the process of initially opening a claim and filing the fist week. Any help would be appreciated. Tom

I asked to use FMLA for a health condition that was affecting my ability to get to work on time in the morning and I was told that it would not look good on me if I pursued FMLA so I did not apply. My boss frequently had me work off the clock so I thought that since other managers could change their schedule and I had in fact done it in the past because it benefited the company that I was not doing anything wrong. We had a point system. After 12 points you could be fired. I did not have 12 points but my boss made the 2 times that I changed my schedule tardies and that made me over on points. I was suppose to be notified at 10 points that I was close but that did not happen. I worked 45 hours a week and my boss had me working another 4-5 hours off the clock. He would move the clock back to make it so that I wouldn't get overtime. I am being fired unjustly and they have denied my unemployment.
