Two Common Reasons for Benefits Denial
An employee loses unemployment benefits usually for one of the following reasons. When an employer terminates an employee and the employee is denied unemployment compensation, the employer must prove in a hearing that willful misconduct occurred. Meanwhile, if an employee quits a job voluntarily, the employee must prove that real and substantial circumstances would compel a reasonable person under those circumstances to act in the same manner.
Furthermore, an employee is not eligible for benefits if the employee’s actions caused harm to the employer’s business. In addition, an employee is not eligible for benefits if the employee quit for no good reason.
