Employer Appeal

Once a claims examiner makes an initial determination
that a claimant is eligable for benefits how often are these determinations reversed and is it usually hard for an employer to get an initial determination in favor of a claimant overturned?

We will assume you are talking about an unemployment insurance claim. More than 50% of the time, appeals are adjudicated in the employers favor. Your chances of winning are better in some states than in others. In every state, your chances of winning an unemployment appeal are better if you have documentation that shows the employee was fired for cause, and had ample opportunitites to address this issue.

Many employers routinely appeal the decision every time unemployment is awarded, reasoning that if they win only one, they are still saving money.
