Former Employee Found to be Eligible for Unemployment... HUH?
I have a former employee who came to me to let me know they had accepted employment elsewhere. I requested of them if possible could they stay on until a replacement was found to which she stated they could & would. Within the week I had found a replacement from within our firm of a PT employee. On the next shift of the employee who was leaving for other employment, this was made know to them, they completed an exit interview citing the new employment as reason for leaving and they were thanked for their service and notified that the employee who accepted the opening would be starting immediately. In the exit interview they gave glowing reviews of their term of service here citing no issues at all in fact they loved it here just recieved a better offer from a former employer. A couple of weeks later, I received notification of the request for unemployment. With my protest I included all information of separation inclusive of the exit interview in their own had citing their leaving my employ as accepted employment elsewhere including the new employer they had taken a position with.
DSE determined the claimant was separated for reasons attributable to a lack of work because the claimants hours were given to another employee.???? I want to file an appeal but what more can I say or include?? Very Bumfuzzled!
