Adjudication

When we become aware of issues that call into question whether someone can receive benefits, we are legally required to look into it. While many issues can be resolved with quick follow up questions, many times it requires a more thorough review through an adjudication process. Some common issues that require adjudication:

  1. If somebody quits their job, determining if the circumstances disqualify them from getting benefits
  2. If somebody is fired, finding out if the circumstances disqualify them from getting benefits
  3. If somebody does not accept work that is offered to them, finding out if the circumstances disqualify them from getting benefits
  4. For people who work for educational institutions, every break between school years or terms, we must adjudicate whether they are likely to be doing the same type of work after the break as they did before to determine if they can receive benefits during the break
  5. If somebody is not available for work
