Anyone get approved and start getting cheks and then receive an appeal letter that there would be a hearing? If so, how long did it take to get the hearing and did you get a lawyer and did you win?

I can tell you how this works, I know someone in my family who went through this.

Okay, so you started receiving benefits and then the company you worked for appealed UE's decision (UE=Unemployment). You can continue drawing while you're on appeal. Continue to request your checks and do your elgibility review. Remember, if you ultimately lose, you have to repay the money.

The first hearing will be farily simple. You can call witnesses, but it's mostly cut and dry over the phone. If you win this hearing, the employer can appeal that decision, but it usually will do no good.

In my friends case, he lost the first appeal. If you do, you will appeal this decision and it will go to Frankfort to the Unemployment Commission. Be forewarned, if you lose the first hearing, don't worry. BUT you could be up to six months getting your benefits back.

Remember though, you can continue drawing on this 1st appeal until a ruling is issued. My family member did all this without a lawyer.

If you were fired through no fault of your own, you should have nothing to worry about.

How long did it take for the first hearing to be held by phone and the decision to be rendered? t would be hard to make it 6 months with no income.

Thank you very much for the info you gave me. I don't know if I need a lawyer and don't know who deals with this kind of thing.
