If you've lost your job through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to receive unemployment benefits. The fact that your claim may have been initially denied by an Adjudicator with the Employment Security Commission is not necessarily the end of the story. As a former Appeals Referee with the Commission, I know that the Adjudicator’s determinations can be overturned at a hearing.
Even in cases where the employee was partially at fault for the loss of their job, or where they had to leave their job due to illness, or because of the way they were treated at work, an employee may still qualify for unemployment insurance benefits. In fact, North Carolina law generally presumes that the discharged worker is entitled to receive unemployment insurance benefits and the employer has the burden of disproving that presumption.
