jen_atl in Atlanta, Georgia said: I wanted to find out if you can receive unemployment benefits based if you quit? Like if the supervisors were racist and yelled at you and belittled you in front of other employees and you quit, can you get unemployment? And lets say it went on for like a year.

Unfortunately, unless you had a co-worker or co-workers to back you up on this they will go with the employer everytime. Did you keep records on when this happened? I too went through the same situation and I lost!!! My situation was very ugly and the other co-workers were told if they said anything, they would lose their job. Good luck and wish you the best!

Most of the time, it appears that these hearing are a monumental waste of time. The hearing officers are going to side with the employers, who often are politically connected, and if they are a major employer, you can just forget it. Even when you have a racist unprofessional obnoxious management team, you get nowhere without witnesses, who are trembling in fear of losing their jobs if they dare speak up in support of an employee who has been unfairly dismissed. It's shameful that these people are allowed to get away with this, but that is what happens

tammy in Douglasville, Georgia said: i won my appeal just wondeing how long till i get any money

Hey, Tammy. Usually, you'll get it after you claim the next week's unemployment benefits. If you've signed up for direct deposit either at a GA DOL center or online, you should have your money in your account no later than 2 days after your certification day. Just go online after you certify next week and click on the 'inquiry' link on the main certification page, put in your SSN and PIN. It should show the status as "$xxx.xx was forwarded to your account" for all of the weeks you've claimed. Once it states that, the money will be in your account within two to three days.

I was the office manager at a firm for 4 years. They hired in a new General Manager. He was very intimidated by my knowledge. He often criticized my work, etc. One day, he cut my pay by $4/hr. and gave it to another MALE EMPLOYEE who just started 6 wks before. I questioned him. He said we were "cutting back". I gave other means of saving the company money and he told me basically, Take it or Leave it! I told him I thought it was discriminating and told him I would think about it... saying "This is CRAP!" as I walked out -- at 5:15pm on a Friday afternoon. I received an email from him SUNDAY EVENING saying that I was on PAID Administrative Leave. He said he would let me know when to return back to work. I got an email Monday afternoon stating that I needed to be in the office at 9am on Tuesday. When I arrived, he said "I was really hoping you would've called me over the weekend"... then gave me my separation paper. I didn't read it until I was already home -- I was IN SHOCK! NO WRITE UPS IN OVER 4 YEARS! OH MY!!!! I read the papers after I stopped crying... it was for "GENERAL MISCONDUCT/ABUSIVE LANGUAGE" There were NO WITNESSES! Only me and him... he had even started off the meeting by telling me that it was "his" office now and that he could do whatever "he" wanted to do... He even chuckled and explained that he had been accused of sexual harrassment at his previous job, but it couldn't be proved.... INTIMIDATION!!! ANYWAY... I filed for unemployment benefits... I was DENIED. I have since requested an appeal... What do you think? Is this something I can win?? He totally lied about this! I never received any type of conference over my actions (yes, I cried too - but I've had major financial issues in the past year... ) Is crying considered misconduct? Is the word "CRAP" considered abusive language? Everyone at the office used the "f" word constantly... I didn't, but it's like he's saying I did! What do I need to do!? It's my word against his! How can I prove this?

Hey, Kengal

I honestly believe you can win. The worst they can tell you is 'no' but, it doesnt ever hurt to try. If you can prove, either with or without witnesses, that you quit for a good work related reason, which from what you've provided, is, I think you have a good chance. If you havent had any write-ups in over four years of employment with the company, subpoena the company for your employee records, if you feel your work record will be of good use to you during the appeal. If you have any email communication between the two of you, that will help, forward them to the Dept. of Labor Appeals Tribunal. Regardless if noone witnessed the conversation between you and him, do you know of any other people who, either are still employeed or not employed at the company, who can testify about his character? If so, ask them if they can be of witness during your appeal hearing. I think that would be helpful. Good luck!

I got employed through a temp agency in Jonesboro, GA in Jul 2010.... My assignment ended Oct 8th 2010... On that date I asked for another assignment... there was no more work available (unable to pay my rent I got put out of my apt and forced to move to Smyrna GA) so I filed for unemployment... I got denied because they were claiming that I didn’t ask for another assignment (and I did) so I filed for an appeal... I had the appeal hearing Dec. 7th 2010... They openly admitted that I DID indeed ask for work when my last assignment was over but I didn’t continue to ask for work on a weekly basis so my appeal was denied. I told the judge that I got put out of my apt and moved 30 40 miles away from the area so that the reason why I didn’t continue to call in...Through this 3 4 month period I have been looking for work at other temp agencies just not the 1 that I was working for between Jul&Oct... Should I have won this case???? Thank you for your time!

Greetings everyone,,I am new to this blog but I need some advise please. I won my first appeal hearing which my employer(Federal Govt)for 24.5 years did not show. They are claiming they thought it was a telephone hearing so they have appealed it again!
but the language the Human Resourses Specialist used was not professional at all. One of the statements was an appeal is warranted in order to ensure prudent use of taxpayer monies.
But before that this statement was made
Perhaps if this office was contacted, the electronic coordination would have clarified telephone versus in person.
SHE MADE THE COMMENT "OUR ONLY MEANS OF APPEAL APPEARANCE IS VIA TELECONFERENCE"
now when they start making the State of Georgia mind them. Sounds like the DOD is punishing them as well as myself. any recommendations??
thanks for any help anyone can provide

Unfortunately not if you did not contact the temp agency on a weekly basis.

Barbara in Atlanta, Georgia said: It,s hard here in Georgia that while things is so mess up. They will hire a young stud to do the job and things get so mess up , and the next thing you know the plant is close. Because they is faster and not respondsible not caring if it finish good or not. Management is very poor these day.

No offense, but how can you expect anyone, much less an employer to take you seriously with a post like that? Your grammar and spelling is atrocious! My 8 year old pointed out all your mistakes.

"...that whlie things are so messed up..." I can only guess that you meant, "that's why things are so messed up." And when you said, "...and things get so mess up and the next thing you know the plant is close...", what you meant to say was, "...and things get so messed up, and the next thing you know, the plant is closed." Please, for heavens sake, go down to your local community center or library.and sign up for some english courses (they are free with all of the immigrants trying to learn). Then talk to the loclinic cal employers. Because if you don't, the best job you.will ever find is that of a fry cook at Mickey D's!!!!

I had a phone hearing Thursday and received a letter the next day on Friday that I won the case. I was VERY surprised at the quickness of the decision though I will say my employer really had no case and my situation was very cut and dry in my favor.

A. Michelle in Toccoa: Why are you so hateful/disrespectful to "Barbara in Atlanta?" It is uncalled for and shows that you have only one perspective - your own. Not everyone in the world can be like you. You obviously understood what she meant. However, I can't figure out what "loclinic cal" means and I have a BS and part of a masters degree. Calm down and live and let live. It takes all kinds of people to make it work.

We had our GDOL Appeals hearing this morning. Or rather, my husband did. It was for him anyhow.

His previous employers were a no show.

Does anyone know what effect this will have on his claim for benefits?

Employer no show is a good thing. It should be okay. However, they could come back and say they didn't get notice. WARNING!!! If that happens, they will set it for hearing (their non appearance), then do at the same time a hearing for the benefits. So if that happens, BE PREPARED to defend the benefits claim. (You will not get another chance). I had that happen.

I had my phone interview on Tuesday. Employer sent in letter stating that they would not be participating in interview (they are okay with me receiving benefits). Does the rep at time of interview reveal the decision or wait for letter to arrive? How long before I receive decision in mail? Will the benefits site show "paid" prior to letter be sent out, if it was in my favor?

On saturday I received a letter i have to file an appeal. i am very confuse and scared. The benefit keeps a roof over my head.
I am facing my first unemployment hearing appeal process. Since i have never been in this type of situation at all.
What am I suppose to do. I will be homeless in a few week if i do not get a hearing right away. I have been receiving benefit up until now. I have all the documentation to support this action as I am continuing to looking for work.
