Hey all,

So late last month, I "quit" a previous job I was at (Was basically forced to quit/constructively discharged). I made two weeks of unemployment claims. Out of the blue, a company I applied to (I had been job hunting for about 2 months prior to my last day at the previous job) gave me a call back to schedule an interview. Thankfully, I was offered the job, and am working again .

The question I have though, is about the unemployed period. Constructive discharge, as unfair and as much as it sucks, is pretty hard to prove. Despite submitting a lot of evidence with my claim, it was denied (naturally) and they're asking for the money for this period to be paid back.

Should I even bother appealing it? I just need to know whether or not it'd be a long, uphill battle that ultimately, would be fighting over a relatively small amount of money. As much as I'd love to "stick it" to the previous employer for being a bunch of little ****'s, I'm concerned that it'd be too much time and effort on my part to be worth it, and that they'd just counter-appeal it if I won anyway. If so, I'd rather just move on in life and leave the rest to Karma!
