Denial of Unemployment Benefits - appealed again!

I previously blogged about an employer who lied to the Maine Department of Labor regarding the reason I am no longer employed with him. Well, I continue to try to get the Maine Department of Labor to reverse the decision denying me unemployment benefits. The latest decision came from the Unemployment Commission on January 31, 2017. It affirmed the decision of the Office of Administrative Hearings, which had affirmed the decision of the Bureau of Labor...or whatever. They're all birds of a feather, and they flock together. You have 10 days to request a reconsideration, so I did that. Yesterday I received word from them: it was simply that my request was received. By the way, I have 180 days (so 6 months) from the date of the alleged violations of employment law, to file a complaint with the EEOC. That deadline will come around the end of March.
