I was told by a claims examiner that I would only get paid partially for 1 week (since I resumed work the week that I filed unemployment) and that In NJ the law states they can only look back to the Sunday after your claim was filed.

I was contemplating filing earlier but kept getting the run around from my employer if I can or not. I was technically employed but on Disability, when I got cleared to go back work, due to the nature of my job I had to go to training to be qualified, it took the company over a month to schedule training therefore I was not compensated by ANYONE for about a month.

The claims examiner said to file an appeal for back-pay and explain why I didn't file right away. How does this process work, how long is it, and what are the changes for getting that month of backpay from the Department of Labor?

Thank you

There's holes in your story. If you were on disability, you weren't available for work and not eligible. If you were technically laid off while awaiting your employer to put you back into the schedule, the mistake you made was asking them if you could file for unemployment. They usually won't know, and they have a zillion reasons to make you not file or delay filing. Now, if you asked unemployment about this and they gave you wrong information, that would be a reason you could get your claim back dated, but don't count on it.
