How do you overturn a hearing determination?

Unemployment was granted. Worked briefly for an agency that acted in bad faith.
This agency filed an appeal stating that I refused work.
Unemploymnet ruled in my favor two times stating it was not a bona-fide job offer. Agency continued to appeal.
At the hearing level the officer determined I should have accepted the lower paying wage. However, the other rulings stated there had been no job offer.

The pay was significantly lower than I had been earning previously.

The agency did not have an increase of unemployment insurance due to me going back on unemployment. The appeals were malicious.

What arguments should I use for the Review Committee?

You need to get into all of the documents submitted by the employer starting with your initial claim. This is available from the ODJFS upon request to you. You need to keep in mind that either the offer was not legit or a sham and the real objective of the entity was to make sure they could get rid of you.

You can also see an employment attorney with your file and go over specific strategy based upon your facts before any review. You can select one at: www.oelasmart.net/directory
