Yes you're absolutely correct! I spoke with Commissioner Wirth and he stated that my denial process would be expedited. He said the only problem is "my appeal" hasn't been entered in the system yet. Heven told me to call back Monday and he would give me a date within two weeks. I'm hoping this ain't just bull but he too was impressed that the governors office contacted him regarding my case! I'm hoping this helps the process. Thank you so much.....each one teach one!

"Pended" means that the UI people have not yet made a decision on whether you get UI or not. A lot depends on WHY you lost your job. If you quit, chances are the "pended" will just become a disqualification. If you were fired, maybe 50/50, but if you discuss why you were fired, we can give a better answer.

Yes, if NJ doesn't dq you for 8 weeks for simple misconduct (see below), you get those back weeks. Unless you have a clear layoff, NJ generally doesn't pay until six weeks after you apply, earliest.

Were you interviewed? Why did you lose the job?

Otherwise, this posted on another thread today, applies to you, as well:

Fyi, if you are approved without a dq, there's a good chance your online status will change before you receive a decision letter.

You won't be denied [unless NJ finds severe misconduct]. Worst case, expect an 8-wk dq from benefits from date of discharge (I assume you were discharged the week prior to 4/24) for simple misconduct - which NJ issues when there are questions on the discharge - after which you can begin receiving benefits - which means, again, worst case, first week benefits are payable is week ending June 18th, for which you will be paid on 6/21 or a little thereafter.

If NJ approves without a dq, you will be paid retroactively. All you can do now is wait.

Hello just an update, my husband and I had our appeal on Monday 6/6.....not sure how long it takes for an answer but neither of our employers participated and when I asked him why they wasn't on the line, he stated they didn't contest it! Do you think that's a good sign or that irrelevant?

No, because you quit, the burden is on you. All you have going for you is "uncontested" testimony.

Chyvan are you speaking from experience? According to the NJ SAFE ACT, domestic or sexual violent crimes are "good cause" to relocate.....even Chris Christie secretary called UI Appeals to get our case expedited......so we'll see.....just updating the forum!

I read that. I think it says that it's good cause to break your lease to relocate. However, I didn't see one thing any where in the NJ SAFE ACT that says that it's good cause to quit your job to collect UI.

I feel horrible about what happened to your family, and I hope my interpretation is wrong. When you get the decision back, then we'll all know how this is handled. I just don't want you to think that the employer not showing up in a "quit" case is some wonderful thing like it can very much be in a discharge.

My experience is as a "quitter," I had a pain getting UI. I did everything right and was denied for my first 4 appeals so I very much know what it feels like to beat your head against a wall because others just don't "get it."

I had asked someone I know in NJ who is familiar with this stuff so glad you raised it so it jogged my memory to respond.

There is no direct regulation in unemployment that would apply to automatically approve benefits due to domestic violence of a non claimant. That is the law. Unemployment just has the requirement to approve if you were the victim. Now, that does not mean you wont be approved for benefits but its based on a provision in unemployment regulations that allows the state to grant benefits under extraordinary circumstances that are not addressed by regulations if the totality of events mirror other state regulations that do have special previsions in authorizing exclusions.

The ALJ may just get a piece of paper saying use section bla bla bla as mitigating circumstance to call it justifiable. If they were instructed to use this executive type of waiver, they will do so, grant benefits, and it;s over and done with. If they were not given any instruction, they may deny using the regulations they do have that will force a Board Review where executive privilege can be applied.

One thing to know is your former employer is out of this. Their account is not being charged, they have no further say, they prevailed on the quit. It is now a matter between you and the state as it will be the state who pays for this out of their own funds (funded by the employee's portion of taxes), not unemployment funds paid by businesses. So the fact your former employer was not present is immaterial as they technically have no say as they are no longer involved.
