Appeals Guide - For Claimants, Employers, and their Representatives

Please carefully study this explanation of your appeal rights and the appeals process. It can help you obtain a fair and timely decision. If you have questions, call any of our offices toll-free at:


The Department of Labor's Employment Security Division (ESD) administers the unemployment insurance (UI) program under the Alaska Employment Security Act. ESD issues written notices of determination to claimants and employers that affect their benefits, rights, and obligations.

If you are a claimant, you may appeal any written ESD determination that denies or restricts your unemployment insurance benefits.

If you are an employer, you may appeal any written ESD determination that concerns the work separation of a former employee or your UI tax liability.
