  • Nurse as denied Unemployment APPEAL??? Arizona

    I am a professional nurse of 33 years. Recently i have worked at a doctors office for 3 years in the city of Phoenix.

    i had intentions of relocating to Florida in the near future. I wanted to give my 2 week notice. The day after New Year i had asked to speak to my Dr. reguarding my 2 week notice. Before i had handed my Letter of Resigation he had said my services were no longer needed. TOLD me to leave the premises and not to come back. I immediately filed for unemployment. Tried to get my last pay check which was held back for 3 weeks. Called the Labor Board and it was given to me the last DAY before any action.

    I filed and was ontime with my unemployment calls. I was DENIED benefits for the reason of I did not follow handbook proceedures. I had GOOD intention of 2 week notice and helping the incoming replacement.

    I am having my APPEAL hearin Feb. 2nd Am i in good standing or did i do something wrong?

    Any suggestion or insight will help

    It is standard procedure for employers to fight UI claims. What you need to do is file an appeal of the decision that was made in the favor of the employer. The appeals department will send you a packet of paperwork to fill out and return, then a phone hearing is set.

    The phone hearing is a great tool, but you MUST BE PREPARED! Have all of your statements, thoughts and paperwork in front of you. The employer will need to be prepared as well.

    I assume you were never given any written warnings as to handbook compliance failure? If so, good!

    Definitely file for an appeal, it is worth your effort.
    Not everything in America is actionable in a court of law. Please remember that attorneys are in business for profit, and they get paid regardless of whether or not you win or lose.

    I offer my knowledge and experience at no charge, I admit that I am NOT infallible, I am wrong sometimes, hopefully another responder will correct me if that is the case with the answer above, regardless, it is your responsibility to verify any and all information provided.

      Handbook procedures for what, may I ask?
      I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

        The employer probably said OP didn't give 2 wks. notice as per handbook procedure but I will let the poster verify that. I could be wrong.
