Unemployment Stress: Unemployment Tip #013

The process of seeking and appealing for benefits is stressful.  Applicants can reduce stress by rescheduling their appeal hearing for a time that works best for them.  Far too many applicants forget they have rights.  Applicants have a right to acquiring a subpoena.  

Also, Applicants have rights regarding when and how their hearing will be scheduled.  If meeting with a judge interferes with a family conflict, try to reschedule.  If an Applicant works best after the lunch hour, reschedule.  As simple as it might be, reduce unemployment stress by finding a court date and time that accommodates you being at your best.

Unemployment Tip # 013 – I believe applicants can reduce stress by rescheduling their appeal hearing for a time that works best for them.  Far to many applicants forget they are allowed one opportunity to reschedule a phone call with a judge (assuming specific rules are followed).  If meeting with a judge interferes with a family conflict, try to reschedule.  If you work best after the lunch hour, reschedule.  As simple as it might be, reduce unemployment stress by finding a court date and time that accommodates you being at your best.”

Unemployment Stress

Other times, stress is far more significant than finding a different court date and time.  

The financial burden of getting denied unemployment benefits can be revived by having a plan.  Even better, an Applicant will have a game plan and a back-up plan.

Generally, a game plan is their legal strategy of acquiring benefits.  After all, a boss and employer are unique to the Applicant.  Verbalizing the storyline that led to a discharge requires careful planning.

Usually, a storyline starts with the date of a discharge and works backwards.  Sometimes, this comes as a surprise because people like the idea of starting from the beginning, as if their first day of work and why they were hired.  

Starting from the beginning when talking with a unemployment law judge generally makes the conference more stressful than it needs to be.  Thus, reduce unemployment stress by creating a game plan designed to show why and how one is eligible for benefits.
