Antioch, TN asked in Appeals / Appellate Law for Tennessee

Q: I was denied unemployment benefits because my employer said that I was in unacceptable attendance. But the reason so

Was that I got sick with no insurance but I did go to my local clinic to get checked out..remind you this was the time when the covid-19 pandemic began...I was told not to return till I got a doctor's note to verify that I did not have covid-19. In which I did so from my local clinic.. Is it worth trying to appeal because the employer stated that my attendance was unacceptable even though that's the only time I've ever missed work period.
