Default Company taking forever to respond to claim.

DH got termed April 30, filed for unemployment May 2. Unemployment list his claim paperwork several times. Finally got things in order, and sent it to the company. It has been four weeks and the company has still not responded. DH called HR, and was told the paperwork was with corporate. My question is - how long can they stall? And what ARE they doing for so long? I dont have a lot of faith in this company - unethical practices, no strong HR to make sure rules are being followed and it is maddening that they are taking things so casually while we are struggling to pay our bills.

Im in Ca and when I worked at my company, we had 10 days to respond to somone filing for UI. It stated as such on the form in BOLD writing. If we did not respond, it was like not showing up to court. If the employer does not respond , at least in CA. then they are not arguing against a claim.

Call the UE office and ask them how long does company have by law to respond. each states has their own timeline for a company to respond. If they don't respond, ask the UE office what is the state rules if that happens. You can also check your state's UE website for a link tot he actual rules. Most times if they just don't respond (not the response was lost or misdirected) the claim is in your favor and they give up their chance to contest it.

When I was unemployed, I never filed paperwork with the company, it was always through the Employment Office. The company is only supposed to respond to the Employment Office. I don't know what papers your husband filed with the company.

My husband did not file papers with the company. He filed with the unemployment office, and then, they forwarded it to the company. And that was the last we heard from them. He called the unemployment office last week and was told they were waiting to hear back from the company. He called the company's HR, and was told corporate had it, and that they have not heard back. I will keep everyone posted. DH will be calling the unemployment office tomorrow.

Thanks for your replies,

B

My understanding is the same as Sno's - the company only has to respond if they are disputing the UI claim. I don't understand why your UE office is "waiting to hear from the company".

I assume you mean 'lost', and frankly that's slightly unbelievable - once and had to resubmit MAYBE, but several times? Nah
