If you are unemployed, you may be eligible to receive unemployment insurance benefits. When you open a claim for unemployment insurance benefits, the New York State Department of Labor makes an initial determination about your eligibility based on various criteria. Your former employer can protest your eligibility to receive unemployment insurance benefits.
If you receive a notice of determination from the New York State Department of Labor saying that you are ineligible for benefits, you can request a hearing. If the Department of Labor’s initial determination is that you are eligible for benefits, your employer can request a hearing.
Korder Law provides representation at unemployment insurance hearings. These hearings are like mini-trials at which an administrative law judge will consider testimony and other evidence from you, your former employer, and the Department of Labor and decide whether to sustain or overrule the initial determination.
An attorney can maximize your chances of winning your hearing by guiding you through the entire process from reviewing your case file with you to preparing you and your witnesses to testify to representing you at the hearing.
