Am I going to continue being denied unemployment benefits?

1 Answers. Asked on Apr 18th, 2017 on Labor and Employment - Pennsylvania
More details to this question:
I was laid off in February, without any call back. My employer took out taxes and I received my W'2. He did not however, pay them to the IRS. I keep being denied unemployment benefits because they say I have no wages reported to unemployment. Do I keep appealing, cause this is not helping me financially at all. I have no income whatsoever.

Yes you should appeal.  I would think that if you can provide proof that you've worked the sufficient number of credit weeks, you'd be eligible for benefits regardless of whether your employer has reported and remitted payroll deductions properly. 

I recommend that you seek out a local attorney for a more in depth discussion of the matter. I do not recommend that you take any action steps without such a consult. Act quickly because by waiting, you may lose certain rights and remedies available to you.
