Determining Eligibility for Unemployment Benefits
People who have been laid off from their jobs often depend on unemployment benefits to keep themselves and their families financially afloat until they can find another job. If your application for benefits is denied, an attorney can help you determine whether the denial was wrongful. To decide whether the thousands of unemployed citizens of California are eligible for benefits, the state agency looks to several factors, such as:
- Did you voluntarily leave your job or were you laid off?
- Were you fired from your last job for misconduct?
- Did you work and have sufficient earnings for a certain period of time?
Simply being fired from a job does not necessarily render you ineligible for benefits, however if your employer reported termination due to misconduct, your initial application will likely be denied. An employment attorney can help you fight allegations of misconduct or other factors that may be keeping you from receiving benefits.
