mike, from what I read on this board, temp agencies do this all the time. One poster recently had an examiner who was fed up the games temp agencies play and found in favor of the claimant.

Best thing you can do is reconstruct your work history and events very carefully and appeal this decision. One question, of course, is what work did you turn down since your last assignment ended. They are lying and it is very common.

Temp agencies have figured out that there is a catch to being your "employer" rather than your agent - they have to pay into & be charged for unemployment. If they just charged a lump finder's fee and let you work directly for the company, this wouldn't happen. But - that said, they have been notoriously fighting every UI claim, true or not. They have nothing to loose & everything to gain by making their "employees" bear the burden of proof.

You will have to show that they did not offer you other assignments after yours ended. It would be good if you can show you contacted them and they said they had nothing for you. But if you were their employee, they knew your skills, experience, & probably had your resume, and still did not offer you another assignment. They may say they had open job orders, but if they were not offered to you, then you did not turn down any work.
