Many employers and claimants have difficulty understanding the process UC uses to determine an employee’s eligibility for benefits after voluntarily leaving or being discharged from a job. This presentation explains how the service center discovers if the person quit or was discharged, the fact-finding process, burden of proof, factors that are considered when making a determination and the appeal rights.

The UC Service Center is often contacted about what to do when a person refuses work. This presentation explains the application of Section 402(a) of the PA UC Law (Refusal of Suitable Work). Discussion includes the employer’s responsibilities regarding notification that a job offer has been made to both the Claimant and the Service Center, the factors used in suitable work determinations and appeal rights.
