Unemployment: How to Fight Unemployment Claims and Win Webinar
Time: 10:00 AM PST | 01:00 PM EST
Duration: 60 Minutes
Instructor: Vanessa G Nelson
Employers have a lot of power over whether a worker will receive unemployment benefits. Not everyone who is out of work is entitled to unemployment compensation. Filing a claim does not cost workers anything; therefore most departing workers will automatically file for unemployment compensation. Once the claim is filed, it is up to the employer to timely contest the claim, or, if not, the former employee will likely be grated unemployment compensation.
There are a couple of factors that dictate whether a former employee will receive unemployment compensation, which are, the circumstances of the employee´s departure and whether the employer contests the employee´s claim. If a former employee files a claim, you will need to decide whether or not to contest it. Keep in mind, the higher the number of former employees who collect unemployment benefits, the higher your tax rate will be.
This webinar will explain the unemployment process, when employers should contest claims, and how to utilize your power to contest and win unemployment claims.
