My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: Ohio
I was fired from my position in the beginning of January and have received unemployment since then. I was granted unemployment, my employer appealed, and I continued to receive unemployment. They then appealed again and did not provide any further proof that I was terminated for just cause (they gave me a vague termination letter saying I broke a policy without saying which one). Again, I continued my unemployment since they provided no proof. Now they are appealing again and I have to go to court. Their proof that I was terminated for just cause continues to be unclear and I still do not know which policy I broke. I have spoken to a lawyer who has not been too helpful. My question is, if I lose this appeal how am I to pay back the over $8,000 in unemployment. I have not been able to find another job and I am just getting by as it is. How stringent are the laws about paying back unemployment? Thanks.
