My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: Texas
I was denied unemployment benefits and am preparing for an appeal on Monday. My employer did not deny these benefits to be paid, however the Unemployment Agency decided I had violated company rules and policies, rendering me disqualified. My employer also did not respond to the appeal process. I am to have a telephone hearing on Monday. The facts of this are rather confusing. I was partially at fault. And in my initial request for benefits, I stated those.( Probably a bad decision now looking back. I am honest to a fault sometimes. ) My questions are these: 1. If during the appeal, the employer is not present or refusing benefits, can the Unemployment Agency still deny me benefits? 2. What and how should I prepare for this? Thanks!
