Why do you think you need a lawyer?
An employer may only dispute an unemployment claim when it fires an employee for MISCONDUCT. Some examples of misconduct are violation of company policy, violation of law, neglect or mismanagement of the position, or failure to perform work adequately if the employee is capable of doing so.
When an employee is guilty of misconduct the employer should document this and try to follow its own policies and procedures – when doing so will not jeopardize the health and safety of other employees or the public.
Sometimes it becomes necessary to terminate an employee – it’s always best to consult with an Experienced Employment Law Attorney before you make a decision to terminate.
