Unemployment benefits decided by state
A reader asks the Job Doc: 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. 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 and held them responsible. The company appealed the claim. Any idea how to approach it?
