Unemployment Appeal Hearing
If you have been terminated and have filed for your unemployment benefits you may need an attorney. Your rightfully earned unemployment benefits maybe denied by the Department of Workforce Development or the employer may be opposed to you receiving your benefits. However, you have the right to appeal that decision, within ten days, by filing with the Department and requesting an appeal hearing before an Administrative Law Judge. Our office can help you with this process.
It is important to have an experienced attorney help you because you will need to establish that as an employee you were not terminated for “just cause.” The Administrative Law Judge will want evidence presented and testimony given and you may be cross examined by the employer or their attorney. Having your own attorney in your corner is in your best interest.
Furthermore, if you feel that you were wrongfully terminated the Unemployment Appeal Hearing will help gather evidence and test the strength of your case, and will help determine if your termination was discriminatory. If you would like more information please contact our office.
