If you work, there is one particular fact you should be aware of. It’s more than a fact, actually, it’s a reality, and here it is: if you have a job, the chances that you might get fired, laid off, injured, or otherwise find yourself no longer having a job are there. It can happen to you. It may not make it any easier to accept, but it’s true. If you’re injured and that is why you are unemployed, you may need to contact a trustworthy Philadelphia workers’ compensation attorney, such as Todd Lasky at Zavodnick, Zavodnick & Lasky, LLC.
Sometimes you find yourself unemployed, whether through firing, downsizing, or whatever other fancy term your superiors want to call it. Bottom line–you no longer have a job. Sometimes your termination is justified and there is nothing we can do. However, other times you end up being ousted from your job for no apparent reason, and certainly undeservedly. It is at those times that you need an attorney to guide you through the unemployment compensation process.
Depending on how your “separation” from employment is documented by your employer and communicated to the unemployment authorities, your claim may be denied initially. That can be fair even if you have contributed your fair share through unemployment taxes while working. So now you are left not only with no job, but also with no income.
Here is where an unemployment compensation attorney can help, especially if you feel as though you have no recourse. At Zavodnick, Zavodnick & Lasky, LLC, we have attorneys who specialize in handling unemployment compensation claims. These lawyers have experience bringing cases before unemployment compensation referees, and, most of all, winning! Our success rate will be of great benefit to you, as it is certain your former employer will have legal representation.
If you have been fired or otherwise dismissed from your job and have been denied unemployment compensation benefits, contact one of our unemployment compensation attorneys as soon as possible so that we may file an appeal on your behalf. These matters are time sensitive. If you do not file an appeal within 15 calendar days from the date of the initial determination you will be precluded from challenging the decision.
