Have you been denied unemployment benefits?
If you have been denied unemployment benefits, you should contact an attorney. It is important to appeal this decision. If you were to win your appeal, you could be entitled to all of the benefits you requested.
Unemployment benefits are for those who leave a position through no fault of their own and cannot find suitable work. There are many reasons why someone could be denied unemployment benefits, including, but not limited to:
- Failing to meet the earning requirements
- Getting fired for misconduct
- Quitting a position
- Refusing a suitable position
Not all situations call for an appeal. Discussing your situation with an attorney that can assess your matter and guide you through your legal options is best.
Appealing a denial
An attorney can help you file an appeal with the New Jersey LWD Appeal Tribunal within 7 days of the denial notification or 10 days from the mailing date of the letter. Our firm will work closely with you to develop your position. As soon as it is received, the LWD will schedule a hearing and provide details about the hearing to the appellant. During the hearing, your attorney will provide evidence that supports your claim and the employer will most likely be there with counsel as well. Once completed, the Appeal Tribunal will decide on the matter and mail a decision to the parties involved. If the appeal is successful, the matter is over and you should receive the benefits you deserve. However, if you lose, you can appeal the decision to the Board of Review and then the New Jersey Supreme Court.
