Sorry if this isn’t the right bowl! I was fired from my last job due to performance issues. I filed for unemployment and was approved, however my former employer filed an appeal. I’m not even sure what they’re protesting but it’s making me really nervous. What should I do now?

You might have better luck posting in the “Law” bowl, which is larger and more generalized than this one. No one is going to be able to offer you true legal advice over this app, but someone with experience in labor and employment law might be able to give some thoughts on hypothetical fact patterns similar to yours. Good luck, I hope it all works out!

Will do thanks!
