Labor and Employment Division
We counsel employers on unemployment compensation issues with an eye towards providing cost-effective, quality representation. We provide human resources personnel with advice concerning everything from garden-variety issues to obscure matters unique to your organization, and then give guidance on how to contest claims for benefits. We also represent clients in appeal hearings or simply provide behind-the-scenes advice to management in preparation for hearings. Because these hearings often are a precursor to employment litigation on other grounds, we ensure all critical substantive and procedural defenses and evidentiary issues are preserved.
