After being terminated from a job and denied unemployment compensation, a recent client came to ENM Law for advice. The client’s former employer reported that the client didn’t follow proper procedures for calling off of work and eventually quit. Our client denied these claims of wilful misconduct. Attorney McAllister filed an appeal of the denial of compensation before the 15 day appeal period expired and the matter was scheduled for a hearing in front of an Unemployment Compensation Appeal Referee. This hearing was the client’s only chance to present evidence to the Referee to establish why the denial of compensation should be reversed. A hearing often includes presenting witnesses and documents to support the request for reversal. Here, Attorney McAllister helped his client testify about the relevant evidence and the Referee reversed the decision.
Thanks to the hard work of Attorney McAllister, our client walked away with full unemployment compensation benefits.
