However, your first step after receiving a denial letter should be to call Colorado employment law attorney from HKM Employment Attorneys today to discuss your unemployment appeal.
Determining Eligibility for Unemployment Benefits
The unemployment appeals process can be complicated and confusing for the average person. However, you do not want to risk messing up an appeal and receiving a final denial for your benefits.

On the other hand, a qualified employment attorney will know how to analyze whether you are eligible for benefits and whether your denial was wrongful. An attorney will look at factors such as:
- The circumstances surrounding your departure from your job
- The reasons your employer might give for letting you go
- The length of time you worked and amount of earning you had received prior to applying for unemployment
