Unemployment Compensation

A separation of an employee from employment carries potential financial issues for both employees and employers.  An employee has lost a source of income, and an employer may find themselves liable for unemployment compensation for the recently separated employee.  The Pennsylvania Unemployment Compensation Act establishes a safety net that provides weekly benefits to eligible Pennsylvania workers who have been laid off or terminated through no fault of their own.  At Law Office of Scott A. Stein, we represent employees seeking unemployment benefits, as well as employers who must defend against unemployment claims that are without merit.

If you believe you are entitled to unemployment benefits, you must first file a claim with the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry.  If your claim for unemployment benefits has been denied, or you are an employer involved in an unemployment compensation appeal, you are entitled to a hearing before an Unemployment Compensation Referee.

We will work closely with clients to help them navigate the unemployment compensation system.  Contact us to learn how we can help you or your business.
