Get The Unemployment Benefits You Need

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. Employment insurance benefits do not automatically kick in, and your former employer has the right to fight against the claim. But even if you were terminated for cause, it doesn't necessarily disqualify you from receiving unemployment pay. What an employer considers misconduct that results in termination is not always a disqualifying factor under the Labor Law.

What If You Quit Your Job?
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 unemployment benefits after losing a job, you have a right to a hearing, including representation by an attorney. At the Law Office of Lynne A. Papazian in Albany, you pay attorneys' fees only if we help you get the benefits you were denied.

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.
