  • Unemployment Denied

    My husband worked through a temp agency for two months and was let go in Nov of 2008. He was denied unemployment due to the fact that the temp agency stated that he did not call in EACH DAY to see if they had work available even though he did call in and was informed that they will not have any work available until Jan 5h. Therefore, he was denied unemployment. He did appeal and his hearing is scheduled for February 25th.

    The temp agency stated in there policies and procedures checklist that if a temp employee does not call in between 8am-9am, or 3pm to 4pm each day to receive a daily availability verification number (which he never received availability verification number when he called in) or contact the office within a 24-hour time period that he is choosing without coercion or misrepresentation by the temp agency to voluntarily quit.

    He has kept a call in log for each time that he called in for work and was recently told that they have him on the availability list and that he do not need to keep calling in. Is there anything else he can do to help win his case?

    All he can do is appeal & be truthful.

    Good luck to him.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
