I was denied unemployment insurance retraining benefits because I inquired about the benefits a week late (they claim 2 months as the person I spoke with did not document my file). Retraing benefits must be filed for before the 16th week of recieving unemployment payments which I was not advised of when I called in. This was the final decision by the administrative law judge and the appeals board (I appealed twice).
There was another reason I was denied the first go around because the judge felt there was plenty of demand for my skills in the market. The appeals board didn't even comment on that in their denial. I am wondering why...?
I was advised I can appeal it again through the Superior Court with a Writ of Mandate which costs $335 to file. Is it worth even trying? Will they just uphold the ruling and take my money?
