The system is fixed to support the employer. The little guy will never get a fair shake.
The UI system as originally conceived presumes employee eligibility for unemployment benefits. There has been a marked change in unemployment compounded with how the Department carries out this law now to create a presumption of INeligibility and even intentional fraud for accidental mistakes.
