Common Reasons for Benefits Denial
An application for unemployment compensation benefits faces denial when an employee ended his or her employment with either of the following two situations. Of course, a skillful lawyer may be able to reverse the denial; however, only certain circumstances provide for even a chance of that option.
As a rule, an accusation of willful misconduct results in the denial of UC benefits. When an employee enters an employment relationship with the employer, the employee promises to uphold the business interests of an employer. However, willful misconduct reflects intentional disruption of those business interests.
While it is the responsibility of the employer to prove that willful misconduct occurred, the employee should come prepared. Although a skillful lawyer may be able to reverse this denial, proving that an employee’s action did not originate from malicious intent offers a difficult legal challenge. Therefore, willful misconduct usually solidifies ineligibility for UC benefits.
Meanwhile, when an employee chooses to leave a job, the employee relinquishes any right to UC benefits. With the help of a smart unemployment lawyer, an employee receives the responsibility of proving that some circumstance forced the voluntary quit and may be able to gain UC benefits by displaying that a “necessitous and compelling” reason occurred. Of course, voluntary quit usually means that an employee loses eligibility for UC benefits.
