Sub: Appeal For The Denial Of Unemployment
To Whom It May Concern,
This is a formal request to appeal the decision made regarding the denial of my unemployment compensation benefits from the State of Ohio. The letter sent, dated December 30, 2020, stated that the employer was fighting me on grounds that I was not eligible for these funds.
It stated that I quit my employment and that after a meeting, they had encouraged me to stay. The facts provided to you by the employer are false. Moreover, they are a blatant attempt to avoid paying unemployment. I have detailed proof, which I have attached.
During the past two month’s of my employment, more and more demands were being made on me by the new supervisors. I was written up and I disputed the write up due to the impossibility of the situation. I have attached the severance contract that shows they let me go and also paid me a severance package.
The letter will clearly show that this was an attempt to settle without having a lawsuit and signed off on by the head of HR. Based on the fact that I had raised the age discrimination case, had been given an unfair workload and had many other things, it was clear they were trying to push me out the door. The attached documentation will put everything into perspective.
I filled out the application your organization requires, and would like this to be looked at as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 777-589-7854.

RE: Appeal for Denial of Unemployment Compensation
To Whom It May Concern,
I am writing this formal letter to ask that you appeal the denial regarding my unemployment compensation from the State of Illinois. The letter, dated January 12, 2021, affirmed that the employer was disputing me on the grounds that I was not entitled to the funds.
It said that I quit my job and that after a brief meeting I was persuaded to stay on at my job. Those facts, as stated by the employer, are 100 percent false.
Furthermore, they are an obvious and unscrupulous attempt to get out of paying unemployment. I, in fact, have detailed evidence that proves my point, which is attached to this letter.
Over the past few months of working at my job, a new foreman in my department was putting outrageous demands on me. In the end, I was eventually written up, although I fought it every step of the way. You will find that the severance contract clearly reveals they fired me and also compensated me with a severance package.
This shows it’s a deliberate attempt to simply settle out of court. Also, based on the fact that I had been given an unreasonable workload, brought up the subject of age discrimination, and many other reasons, it was obvious that they were trying to get rid of me. However, the documentation that I have attached will put it all in perspective so you’ll understand where I am coming from.
The application form that your agency requires is filled out accurately. Please look into this matter at your earliest convenience. Thank you for taking the time to review both my letter and documentation. If you need to contact me, my number is (123) 777-4343.
