Are Your Unemployment Benefits At Risk? Contact An Attorney Who Will Serve As Your Advocate.

Unemployment Compensation BenefitsUnemployment is a scary prospect for most people who depend on their paychecks for life's necessities. If you were laid off because of downsizing or for a similar reason, you may be able to count on unemployment benefits to get you through the job hunting period ahead of you. Your employer likely paid into the unemployment system — and your job loss should qualify you for benefits.

Clients facing unemployment throughout northeastern Pennsylvania often rely on The Belt Law Firm, P.C., for help obtaining or preserving unemployment benefits. From our law office in Kingston, we help people who have worked in Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, Hazleton and other nearby communities.

As an unemployed worker seeking benefits or challenging cut-off of benefits, you may need help documenting persuasive answers to questions, including:

  • Were you terminated for no fault of your own?
  • Did you quit your job?
  • Were you fired because of poor performance or because you violated rules on the job?

Unemployment benefits are generally reserved for workers who have lost their jobs against their will and without fault. If you quit for certain justifiable reasons, you may still qualify, but the burden of proof of eligibility is on you. A lawyer as your advocate can help you compose and present a compelling case for why you should qualify for unemployment benefits.

In the event that you are denied unemployment benefits, you can appeal within 15 days. The sooner you contact an attorney, the greater your chances will be of making a successful, timely appeal.

Note: Our law firm also helps employers facing unemployment benefit issues. Contact us if your company is experiencing related challenges.
