    The Virginia Employment Commission has proven to be extremely unresponsiveness. I applied for unemployment benefits on June 1, 2020 and was surprisingly advised that my claim was denied because there was no record of my employment during the base year of January 1, 2019 – December 31, 2019. However, not only was I employed through the year of 2019, I also filed my state taxes for 2019 in spring of this year and received a refund from the state. Therefore, it is bizarre that the Virginia Employment Commission/Commonwealth of Virginia would have no record of my employment for 2019.

    I appealed this decision on June 17, 2020 via VEC’s web site, via fax, and via mail (USPS) and, almost two months later, I have yet to hear from anyone at VEC with regard to the status of my appeal. I have also not been able to connect with anyone by phone or via chat on VEC’s web site. On July 28, 2020, I applied for Virginia’s Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation and have yet to receive a response concerning my application.

    VEC has demonstrated VERY POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE and it is my hope that someone will finally follow-up with me.
