Appealing Benefits Decisions
After you lose a job, for any reason, it may be necessary to file for unemployment insurance benefits to support yourself and your family. When you come up against eligibility challenges for compensation or have difficulties navigating the process, it is important to consult with an experienced attorney you can trust. At Employee Advocates, LLC, in Connecticut, our lawyer and staff are experienced in handling complex claims and appeals involving unemployment benefits. We will take the time to review the facts of your case, determine if you have a viable claim, and work aggressively to protect your rights and interests.
Your Rights to Collect Unemployment Benefits
Unemployment benefits disputes can become complicated quickly. If your claim was denied or you are a small business owner who wants to appeal a benefits decision, it is important to consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible. In order to collect benefits, you must demonstrate your work history, willingness to take a new job, and show that your unemployment was not your fault. Even if your claim has been denied, remember you have the right to an appeal.
Our firm routinely handles cases involving the denial of claims on behalf of employees who have quit their jobs or who were fired for wrongful or intentional misconduct. We will review all the facts of your case to determine eligibility for benefits over any employer's objection in an administrative appeal proceeding. We are experienced in cases involving:
- Denied unemployment benefits
- Employment discrimination
- Sexual harassment
- Employer retaliation
- Eligibility for benefits
- Unemployment appeal hearings
Clear, Decisive Advocacy to Protect Your Rights
Usually we will take these cases on a flat rate fee so you will have a clear idea of how much your case will cost, what the projected outcome may be, and whether it is worth pursuing. Our lawyer will provide a clear and forthright assessment of every case so you can have a clear understanding of the processes, procedures and reasonable expectations for the outcome of your case.
