Unemployment Compensation

Unemployment Compensation benefits are available to help workers who have lost their jobs due to no fault of their own. For example, if you are laid off due to lack of work or plant shutdown. You may also receive unemployment if you have quit your job for certain reasons. Benefits are not available if you were fired because of willful misconduct or if you voluntarily quit.  Willful misconduct is something you have done that is against the employer's interests, such as not following the employee handbook or fighting with coworkers. The Unemployment Center in your area will make a determination if your case qualifies you for benefits.

We may be able to advise and/or represent individuals in cases where benefits have been denied. We may also provide help with financial eligibility questions, overpayments, and other eligibility issues. It is important to apply for our services as soon as you receive a decision from Unemployment.
