  • Follow up, follow up, follow up! It may be that the employer was not available. When my husband was denied, he went thru this. The employer tried to delay as much as possible because they knew they had no cause to deny it. Call the unemployment office or go by there. Keep pushing.

  • Perhaps there is a time zone difference?

    Generally, employers are not "required" to call you for a phone interview-- they don't really lose anything, especially in this market, for not hiring someone. It's very tacky and a bad practice, but nothing you can really do about it. Maybe they decided they really didn't need to hire?

    Your husband should appeal the unemployment issue.

  • Are you sure they were supposed to call him, and not that he was supposed to call in to them? I know a lot of this kind of stuff, they make you do the calling these days. I would double check the notice he got for it and make sure he wasn't supposed to call them.

  • You need to double check with the agency and it would have been better if he didn't quit his job. His boss needed to let him go.

  • Keep calling back and if that fails file an appeal. We're in the same boat with the unemployment deal with my DH except he is finishing tech school. They initially said it was fine but the next btch that called said he was there too many hours and wasn't "available". So now we have a hearing set for the 29th. Just keep calling back until you ge ahold of someone worthwhile. The squeaky wheel gets the grease!
