What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?North Carolina
My Wife left a job she had worked at for 3 yrs to go to work as a 1099 employee for another company. Due to the economy she was laid off. She filed for unemployment and was paid for 2 months. Then they reviewed it and they are saying she is ineligible and we must pay it all back. We live in North Carolina. They first said she will be eligible again when she is no longer self-employed. We never thought she was self employed. She got a new hire pack, company handbook and a company email address. But if she was she is not now!! Then in the appeal they said it did not matter, that job does not even count. All that matters is that she left the first job of her own will. Any thoughts. We are both out of work and now in real trouble. She has no unemployment coming in and they say we owe them!!!! Then they keep changing the bar and the reason why she is ineligible. Every other 1099 employee that was layed off from this company has been denied/appealed and won. But not her. Any suggestions.
