I sent my paperwork with my UE claims paperwork to substantiate my efforts to do intentionally well in my job.
The response I rec'd was employer is claiming "willful misconduct."
It's as though the paperwork I sent to PA UE was never even read. And I both faxed and certified mailed 10-pages.
Initially the claim form indicated "not appealable document." Now the new paperwork asserting the same claim (willful) allows for an appeal.
I live in Florida and the employer was in FL. I only worked in FL for 7 months and that is why the UE claim was reopened in PA. I'm here, and the claim money I'm trying to reclaim is from up there PA UE.
I can't find a PA atty that will represent me because I live down here. I've tried calling a few attys up there. It's not like I don't have an appealable situation. I do.
What I don't have is the PA UE notes from the discussion of my FL employer indicating the REASON they're asserting for willful misconduct.
Don't you agree that I need that information? And if so, can I get it from the PA UE office over the phone (preferably in writing) in order for me to be able to appeal?
I already requested in my prev paperwork to have them mail me (email and/or fax) the exact words employer said that substantiates their claim of willful misconduct.
Q: Do I need an atty to get the reason for willful misconduct from PA UE?
Q: If I do get the reason, do I then need an atty to appeal?
Q: We know "at-will" employment exists. I was in a non-union Co. If employer asserts such and such statements (which quite honestly would be false), would my statement of "that is false" to a PA UE claims adjuster be enough? (in addition to my positive performance review?)
Q: Would an atty even take a case like this in today's economy for a single individual who is 40 years old and presently unemployed and still looking for work?
