How Being Fired For Misconduct Can Impact Your Claim For Unemployment Compensation
State laws impose strict requirements relating to unemployment benefits eligibility. Careful review of the circumstances surrounding your termination are part of the complex process. As a general rule, you can only qualify for unemployment compensation if you lost your job through no fault of your own. But exceptions may apply.
As your unemployment lawyer, I, Michael. J. Joshi, can advise you about your legal options. This includes regarding lay-offs or employees who were forced to quit due to bad conduct on the part of the employer such as discrimination, unsafe conditions, harassment and other unlawful reasons.
If your employer fired you for alleged misconduct, this will make you ineligible to collect unemployment benefits. Call The Law Office of Michael J. Joshi for a complete review your case to see if there is anything else you can do.
What You Can Do If You Feel Your Employer Was In The Wrong
If you disagree with a bad conduct firing, you may have viable legal options, such as an appeal. An appeal might be appropriate if you were denied benefits or if you were awarded benefits but your employer decides to fight it claiming your termination was for bad conduct. As your attorney, I can represent you in the appeals hearing and bring the issue in front of an administrative tribunal. If you lose at that level, you may still be able to appeal to a higher agency or eventually the court of appeals.
If you feel you were the victim of discrimination or other unlawful conduct on your employer’s part, contact my office to analyze your case. You may have a wrongful termination claim against your employer.
