  • I have and so has my husband. He actually did have to appeal. His work said he walked off the job and in reality he had complained about some of the workers smoking pot. They drove around and he told his boss he didnt want to get pulled over and arrested because of those fools. Well apparently the boss also smoked lol, so they just never put my husband on the schedule again. We appealed and won. The whole process took about 8 weeks. He was paid from the first week.

  • I filed and received it quickly since I was laid off to to the economy at the end of 2008. Never had to appeal it.

  • Nope. But my husband did. He was denied also. But luckily he found a job 3 weeks later so we didn't have to appeal their decision.

    For us, in Utah, it took them about two weeks to get back. But I'm quite certain that varies from city to city.
