Rights of Employees
Lodi, New Jersey Unemployment Insurance Benefits Lawyers
If you have been fired, laid off or forced to resign from your job in New Jersey there is a good chance you are entitled to receive New Jersey unemployment insurance benefits. However, there are many potential reasons why you might be denied benefits. For example, there is a temporary disqualification if the New Jersey Department of Labor ("NJDOL") finds you were fired for misconduct and a total disqualification if it finds you were fired for either severe misconduct or gross misconduct.
Similarly, for employees who had to quit their jobs, there often are questions about whether they quit voluntarily, which would make them ineligible for unemployment insurance benefits under New Jersey law, or were forced to resign for a reason related to their work, which could mean they are entitled to receive those benefits. There also are strict requirements that you must be ready, willing and able to work, and actively looking for a job. These issues often can be complex, making it important to have an experienced unemployment benefits lawyer representing you.
