Q: What does rescinded mean from a decision that the unemployment benefit agency denied my claim
I filed a claim with the unemployment benefit agency and I was denied then they sent me a message saying that the decision was recinded
A: Cannot say without seeing the paperwork. It would appear to mean that the decision was taken back. However, they usually say the decision was "vacated" not "rescinded." Rescinded is a contract term meaning the contract was repudiated by one of the parties and they want to undo it and put everyone in the positions they were in before the contract. I am hoping that this does not mean that any benefits you were awarded pending the decision will have to be repaid, but cannot tell from what you have posted. This is unemployment insurance law. You need to consult an attorney in your local area that practices this kind of law. Thank you for using Justia Ask a Lawyer.
