What happens if I do not respond to a request for information about a discharge from work?

(1) If you do not respond to a request for information about a discharge from work and if you:
(a) Have not given the department enough information to identify or contact the employer, the department will presume the employer discharged you for misconduct connected with your work. The department will deny benefits under RCW 50.20.066.
(b) Have given the department enough information to contact the employer, the department will not deny benefits unless a preponderance of evidence shows that you were discharged for misconduct connected with your work or the separation was for another disqualifying reason.
(2) If benefits are denied due to misconduct, the denial will continue for ten weeks and until you earn ten times your weekly benefit amount in employment that is covered by Title 50 RCW.
