How to File an Unemployment Insurance Appeal

| No TrackBacks
After the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) reviews a request for Unemployment Insurance, the Commission will issue their decision based on the information you and your employer provide. If you do not agree with TWC's decision, you may appeal the decision by requesting an Unemployment Insurance hearing.

Either the employer or the UI applicant can file for an unemployment insurance appeal through a signed letter. According to TWC, the appeal letter should include your name, social security number, current address, date TWC mailed the Determination on Payment, and a copy of the Determination form. The last date for a timely appeal should be printed at the bottom of your Determination form, but a person typically has 14 days from the date TWC mails you the Determination on Payment to file for an appeal on time. A former employee may continue to request payments every two weeks during the appeals process.

When it comes to an unemployment hearing, Houston employment lawyers will often get involved in a case or dispute between the employer and former employee. A claimant will often hire a Houston employment lawyer to argue a case and to make sure that he or she is being properly represented. Once both parties are notified of the court's decision, which will probably be in a few weeks time, it's important to carefully read the judge's decision and opinion. If the claimant lost the decision or feels that the ruling was incorrect, he or she can usually file for an appeal and have the unemployment case reconsidered.
