Employer Appeal Information

The Department makes a number of formal, written determinations and decisions that may affect your entitlement to benefits and/or the amount of benefits that are payable. You have the right to file an appeal if you disagree with a determination or decision. Each determination or decision explains your right to appeal, and how and when to file your appeal. Generally, an appeal must be in writing and submitted to the Department within the timeframe specified which is usually 30 days from the date of the determination or decision, unless otherwise noted.

Your appeal should include:

  • Your name
  • Current mailing address
  • A brief explanation of the issue(s)
  • Why you’re appealing

How to Appeal your Determination or Decision

Following the adjudication of a claim, the claimant and employer (if applicable) will receive a determination or decision to notify them of the status of their unemployment insurance claim.

Should the claimant or employer need to appeal this determination or decision, instructions and contact information will be provided on the written notice.
