Re: Unemployment payment suspension appeal

View Post

It appears payment of my unemployment benefits will be suspended for a few days because I did not submit my job search summary within the first five days of the following month.

It appears there is an appeal process one can undertake if one does not agree with the suspension... has anyone tried this? Is it a good/worthwhile idea?

Everything points to the suspension following the law, but on the other hand, my case worker did not tell me I had the obligation to submit these at the beginning of each month. Not sure how much of a defense this is though.

Has anyone been in a similar situation?

I don't think appealing will take you any where, the law is the law. On the positive side though, you are lucky they only decided to delay the payment, usually they would fine you i.e: deducting a sum from your monthly payment, ending up with me less money.
