Unemployment benefits decided by state

Q. I took a new job, but once I began, I realized it was clerical and not what I signed on for. After eight months, I found a contract opportunity. I hoped it would lead to a permanent situation. The contract ended after nine months, leaving me unemployed. Since I was a contractor, I was not eligible for unemployment benefits from this company. They went back to my prior company where I was a regular employee and held them responsible.

The company appealed the claim saying I left voluntarily. Any idea how to approach it?
