Unemployment Claim denied due to Remuneration

In June 2008 the delphi plant was closed and we were offered SAP packages to leave. We were told by union reps that if we accepted the package we would receive unemployment and training. As the people who left in 2007 had. We were told that by accepting the SAP we would be giving up our insurance and forever sever ties with Delphi and GM. Now they have denied our unemployment. My understanding of the Remuneration law is that it applies to people who receive seperation pay for X amount of weeks going forward. Our SAP documents never showed any money being paid for weeks going forward.

If you have not seen this already, I did an article on the effect of remuneration on unemployment compensation benefits.


Receiving remuneration is not a basis for ODJFS to deny your claim, however. Rather, remuneration only affects the amount that you receive. Therefore, if your claim has been denied, follow Bruce's recommendation to preserve your appeal.

I am not certain what the reason for losing the unemployment claim is based upon your description. You need to file a timely appeal and keep reporting in during the appeal. You need to see what the reason was for the denial and it may help to see an employment lawyer to have a consult to go over the stated reasons and the approach you should take in the appeal.
