Unemployment Insurance Benefits Are a Basic Right for Employees
Unemployment benefits are a basic right for employees who have been terminated in the State of California. Sometimes an unemployment check can be the difference between being able to pay the rent that month or being put out on the street.
The California Employment Development Department (EDD) is responsible for administering the program that pays unemployed workers their unemployment insurance benefits. If you have been denied your unemployment benefits, contact our office today. We have experience in fighting for the rights of employees who have been denied their benefits.
Were you fired for misconduct? Our office has helped numerous clients win their case even though they were fired for what they were told was misconduct.
Did you leave your job voluntarily? Just because you quit, it does not automatically mean that you lose your unemployment benefits. We have experience in helping clients in cases of constructive dismissal when their boss' behavior became so intolerable that they had to resign.
Unemployment insurance cases raise many complex issues. In dealing with the EDD you need to know how to present your case. This includes winning strategies, as well as how to defend yourself against the attacks of your employer and his attorney.
The Law Offices of Brian E. Hawes has successfully represented numerous clients in their appeals to the EDD.
We have routinely succeeded in convincing judges to reverse the decisions of the EDD and restore rightful benefits to our clients.
Call today and find out if we can help you get your benefits back.
Sometimes the EDD demands that unemployed workers pay back some or all of their unemployment insurance benefits. This can amount to several thousand dollars. If this is your case, we represent clients on overpayment issues, where we have been able to reduce the amount owed, or even eliminate the obligation to repay the EDD altogether.
