Flowery Branch, GA asked in Appeals / Appellate Law, Employment Law and Public Benefits for Georgia

Q: My husband want his unemployment hearing. What are the chances of his employer winning an appeal to the board?

He won his hearing based on the fact that the employer didn't meet the burden of proof regarding warnings and Strikes because they claim there was a three-strike policy. The hearing to place over two days and his former employer did have an attorney. The boss did talk with my husband once before and asked why his work pace had been slowing down which was due the new medication he was on. They even hired another employee to replace him right in front of him and when he asked if that guy was going to replace him they said no. He asked several times if his job is in Jeopardy and they said no. They tried to bring up all kinds of things that we're trying to make my husband look like he intentionally did not do his job properly which was not the case and the hearing officer found in his favor. We just wondered in Georgia what are the chances of his employer winning if they appeal to the board? Where can we get information to write up a good written statement supporting the decision.

A: Hart to say--it depends on the adjudicator, how they felt. If he gets an employer decision then check with Ga.Legal Services/Legal Aid.
