It may seem like common sense, but it took an Ohio Court of Appeals decision to settle the question: Employees can’t keep filing unemployment compensation claims for the same discharge after they lose the first round.
Recent case: Leannard Vickers was fired from his job at Vasu Communications and filed for unemployment . He was turned down because Vasu showed the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services that it had discharged Vickers for cause.
Vickers waited a short time and then filed the claim again. He was turned down because the matter had already been decided. Instead of quitting, he appealed. But the Ohio Court of Appeals refused to consider Vickers’ claim. It said he had already had his day in court. (Vickers v. Vasu Communications, No. 2007-CA-0120, Court of Appeals of Ohio, 2008)
