My unemployment was stopped when my company contested the decision - the Unemployment Office has sent me a letter that I owe them the benefits that I was sent when the allowed me the benefits. Can they do this? Do I have to pay the money back? Is there anything I can do?

The letter should have notified you that you have a right to appeal the decision. You have a short time frame in which to do so. I suggest hiring an attorney to represent you, since there is not just a loss of benefits but the possibility of repayment on the line.
