No, quite the opposite.
As long as your paperwork looks like you qualify (your employer paid in the insurance long enough, you had an employer, you lost your job through no fault of your own), they approve you. They DO send your employer a letter, allowing them to CONTEST any of the facts you represent on your application. As long as your former employer doesn't dispute any facts, you get it.
If they DO dispute facts, there's a hearing, and a worker for the state decides who's telling the truth.
