    At least around here, the appeals process tends to lean sharply toward the employee's benefit.  This does differ.

    When I was let go, my old employer pulled some crap out of their hat and tried to make it fly.  The magistrate practically laughed them out of the hearing room and my benefits were confirmed within two days.

    Reputation and size of the employer matters as well.  I've heard through the grapevine that my old employer pulls this all the time, it's well-known, and they would consequently have an extremely high bar to meet at the hearing.  Not that they'd tell them that, but if a decision could possibly be construed toward the employee, it would be.
