Our Lawyer Can Help If Your Unemployment Benefits Are Denied Or Cut Off
Unemployment is a scary prospect for most people. If you were laid off because of downsizing or for a similar reason, you may be able to count on unemployment benefits to carry you through the job-hunting period.
In northeastern Pennsylvania, you can rely on The Belt Law Firm, P.C., for help to obtain or preserve unemployment benefits. From our law offices in Kingston and Hazleton, we help people who have worked in Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, and other nearby communities.
Do I Quality For Unemployment Benefits?
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. Our experienced unemployment law attorney, Timothy D. Belt, can advocate for you to compose and present a compelling case for why you should qualify for unemployment benefits.
As an unemployed worker seeking benefits or challenging a claim denial or termination 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?
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.
