Navigating the world of unemployment can be tedious.

You’ve lost your job and now you have to deal with finding a new one, we get it, it’s frustrating; especially if you are without work through no fault of your own. If you’ve lost your job and believe it was not your fault, we urge you to file for unemployment benefits.

You begin this process at the Department of Workforce Development (visit our website for more information about where to find the DWD offices). Ultimately a decision is made as to whether or not you qualify for the benefits. If you are denied your benefits you have ten (10) days to appeal that decision, once an appeal is made a hearing with an administrative law judge will be held on the merits of your case.

This hearing is important – it can not only be the difference between receiving or being denied your benefits, but also helps test the strength of your case if you feel like you’ve been terminated based on discrimination.

Give us a call today to see if we can help you with your unemployment needs! Feel free to take a look at http://www.in.gov/dwd/files/Claimant_Handbook.pdf to learn more about unemployment and unemployment insurance!
