Unemployment Representation

No one likes to lose their job, but it does happen. Even with laws to protect your rights, conflicts do arise. 


Unlike other states, in New York Unemployment Benefits are not a right.  Employers can fight your receiving this benefit because they have to pay for it.  What many employees don't realize, is even if you were terminated for cause, that doesn't necessarily disqualify you from receiving this benefit.  What an employer considers misconduct that results in termination, is not always a disqualifying factor under the Labor Law.


An employee who quits may also be entitled to benefits, if the reason for leaving the job was because they were forced to resign, or the terms and conditions of employment changed.  


If you were denied benefits, you have a right to a hearing and if you were granted benefits, your former employer may fight it.  Either way, you have a right to be represented and by law, you only pay if you prevail. 


If you're involved in an unemployment dispute, you'll want a resolution as soon as possible. Speaking with your employer or facing an unemployment hearing alone can be intimidating. It may be in your best interest to consult an attorney in Albany who can advise you of your rights.
