Unemployment Compensation Attorneys in Medina
Helping workers in northern Ohio get the benefits they are entitled to
When you lose your job through no fault of your own, unemployment compensation provides a financial cushion that can help reduce financial strains while you look for work. However, there are many guidelines that determine eligibility for these benefits, and not all applications are approved. In many cases, this is in violation of employment and labor laws.
At Grubb & Associates, LPA, our attorneys are knowledgeable in matters of unemployment compensation in Medina. We have decades of combined experience and are able to skillfully assist you in defending your claim and obtaining the unemployment benefits you need and deserve.
Determining unemployment eligibility
After you have lost your job, you may find that your application for benefits is denied, or that your former employer is challenging your eligibility for compensation. There are three basic steps to determine eligibility for unemployment compensation:
- Financial eligibility: You must demonstrate that you earned sufficient wages from an employer or were employed for a qualifying length of time.
- Benefit eligibility: This step determines whether you are out of work without fault. Generally, you are not eligible for compensation if you left your job voluntarily or were let go due to your own willful misconduct.
- Maintaining eligibility: To continue receiving benefits, you must prove that you are able and available to accept suitable work and not refuse work without good cause.
Initially being denied compensation does not mean that you are not entitled to it. A skilled unemployment compensation attorney in Medina can analyze the facts of your case to determine your rights and put an effective plan into place for appeal.
