Pennsylvania court could not reach merits of case where claimant failed to appeal denial of request for reconsideration

By Payroll and Entitlements Editorial Staff

The claimant was denied benefits where both the Service Center and the Board found that she was not financially eligible because at least 37% of her qualifying wages were not paid outside the calendar quarter in which she earned the highest wages within the base year. She appealed, asserting in the petition that she located an IRS form 1099 for a job and if those wages were included she would be financially eligible. However, the court found that it could not review the claimant's arguments challenging the Board's denial of her request for reconsideration, as she did not appeal the denial of that order and, therefore, failed to bring the Board's denial of her request for reconsideration before the appellate court (Susan Voynow v. UCBR, Pa. Comwth. Ct. (Unpub. Op.), No. 613 C.D. 2019, September 25, 2020).
