How do I prepare myself for a unemployment appeal hearing?
I was fired in December of 2007 after only 1 year as a Personal Assistant to my former employer. She had issues with me, was jealous and did everything possible for me to quit. Well, she noticed I would not quit and that's when she fired me. I was granted unemployment and now she is appealing it with many false statements. What can I do to win this case?

The question here does not seem to be whether or not you were fired, but whether it was with or without cause. As others have said be sure to take any and all documentation with you - especially any performance review you may have had. Hopefully you never made a statement to anyone ever like "If things don't improve, I... More

She has the burden of proof, not you. She is probably wasting her time, because the only thing valid is the incident in which you were fired for. Nothing prior to that actually matters, she has to prove that FOR THAT REASON, not something you said or did 1 day before or 10 years before, but for THAT REASON you had been... More
