My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: New York
I was wondering, does anyone have any incite into how the NYS DOL works in making their initial decision on an unemployemnt claim? When I applied I marked down fired as the reason for unemployment since that's what happened, but my boss told them I quit so not only did they deny my claim, but they also said that I made a factually false statement by marking fired on my claim. Even said that I concealed that I quit. I'm totally shocked by this and obviously will be requesting a hearing for appeal.
Is it policy for NYS DOL to just automatically take the word of the employer over the employee? And does anyone know how long it will take to get a hearing date?
