Can an employer contest unemployment benefits?

Unemployment benefits can be a lifeline for workers facing job loss, but the process is not always straightforward. Employers have the right to contest unemployment claims if they believe the employee is ineligible or has provided inaccurate information. If an employer chooses to contest a claim, it's important to understand how and why they are doing so.

Employers typically contest unemployment benefits when they believe that the reason for termination was misconduct on behalf of the employee or if they believe that an individual is unfit to work. The burden of proof lies with the employer, who must provide valid documentation in order to dispute a claim. Employers may also contest a claim if there was no written notice given by them at the time of termination or if there are discrepancies in wages paid out versus what has been reported by employees.
