What are the steps in determining whether I am eligible for unemployment benefits?

  1. A discharged/fired worker files a claim.
  2. The Department of Labor sends a form to the worker's former employer.
  3. The employer returns the form to the Department of Labor listing the reason for the worker's termination of employment.
  4. A Department of Labor "Claims Deputy" decides whether the worker is eligible for benefits.
