What are our grounds for appeal of this denial?

My son was laid off in March 2009 from full time employment at CNG Financial. He has been receiving unemployment since then, including all extensions. He has gone back to UC to get his BA. This summer he took on a part time (6-8 hour per weekend) job. Unemployment continued at a slightly reduced rate. After expenses & reduced unemployment this job only netted him about $25 weekly. He quit that job 12/5)and duly reported this fact to ODJFS. They said he quit without cause & denied ALL his unemployment claim & claim he was OVERPAID $293 for the week ending 12/4.

There is always a risk when dealing with ODJFS that they will make a determination that defies logic. You need to file a timely appeal on the denial of benefits, and you may have to concede that the loss of the part-time job may yield a reduced benefit. You will have to request a hearing and also look at the ODJFS regulations which were the basis of the decision. The decision should give the basis and the law relied upon to deny the benefits.
