My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: Ohio
Is there anyway to appeal and win the denial of benefits because of a lump sum severance. Ohio unemployment has determined that my severance was received for a period of 38 weeks even though it was a lump sum payment (therefore benefits are being denied for 38 weeks even though I will not get paid severance over that period and they will take more taxes out because of the lump sum than if I were to get paid weekly). My severance agreement does not state any dates or weeks for payment, only a date of my last day of employment. I have the option to appeal, could I appeal to say that it was allocated for that specific date and win? If so, how? If not, is there any other way of appealing the decision?
Thank you in advance!!!
