How Do I Appeal A Denial of My Unemployment Claim in Pennsylvania?

The procedure for unemployment in Pennsylvania is understandably quite confusing for the thousands of people who have never been through the process before.  Allow me to explain how it works.

My name is John A. Gallagher, anmd all that I do is help employees with employment related claims and questions. I handle many, many unemployment hearings in Malvern, Norristown, Springfield, Reading, Bristol and Philadelphia.

The process is as follows.  You call in your claim or file it electronically.  The claim is initially decided by the Unemployment Service Center, which will often collect information from you and your former employer before issuing a Notice of Determination that will either grant or deny you benefits.

Questions for a labor lawyer about any employment matter in Pennsylvania? Call 610-647-5027, e-mail me directly or send an e-mail inquiry via the "Fill Out My Form" box to your right. We will respond promptly with an analysis of your situation, and discuss potential options going forward at nio cost to you.  You may also visit our Website or check out our YouTubeVideos on some employment issues (click on the badge to your right).

Either you or your employer may appeal the Notice of Determination.  If you are appealing, remember this:  YOU DON'T NEED TO PROVE THAT YOU HAVE A CASE IN ORDER TO OBTAIN A HEARING BEFORE AN UNEMPLOYMENT REFEREE.  All that you need to do is file an appeal, and you are automatically entitled to a Hearing before a Pennsylvania Unemployment Referee.  In fact, anything that do say in your appeal can "be used against you" at the Hearing; that is why we tell people to simply say "I disagree with the Determination." 

Once an appeal has been filed, the detyermination issued by the Service Center becomes TOTALLY IRRELEVANT.  The case will be decided based solely upon the evidence that is introduced at the Unemployment Compensation Hearing before the Referee.
