Helping Our Clients Get Their Deserved Unemployment Compensation

If you are terminated from your job, you may qualify for temporary payments of money through unemployment compensation. It is crucial that you contact an unemployment compensation service center in your state to obtain benefits soon after your separation from employment. While unemployment Service Centers in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York have made filing for benefits very convenient, mistakes can happen, and your benefits may be denied. If you are unable to get your rightfully deserved benefits, then a knowledgeable attorney can help.

At Karpf, Karpf & Cerutti, P.C., we help our clients in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York with their unemployment compensation. The employment lawyers at our offices in Philadelphia, Bensalem, Marlton and Astoria can guide you through the process and overcome any hurdles you may face. You can call our Pennsylvania office now at 215-639-0801 or our New Jersey office at 609-683-4022.

Understanding The Unemployment Compensation Process

Once you have submitted a claim, your employer will be asked to provide information about the circumstances of your separation from employment. Depending on the information provided by your employer, you may initially be denied benefits. Regardless of whether you are initially denied or are granted benefits, you or your employer will have a right to appeal the decision.

There is a strict deadline that you can appeal a decision by the unemployment service center. You must make a timely appeal, or you may forever waive your right to any unemployment benefits.

In Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York, you are generally permitted to have an attorney represent you at certain stages of the appeal process. Attorneys are permitted to assist in the appeal process because many rules that govern civil trials also govern unemployment hearings, including the right to cross-examine witnesses.
