Uc Benefits

In a written letter from my manager he stated I was no longer needed and no reason was stated for my dismisall, n two months later he filed an appeal and and in his appeal he stated five lies on why I was terminated. My question is will this hold up in court?

No Need To Worry

I cannot understand how your employer could appeal two months after you began receiving UC benefits. The time limit is 30 days and there are no real exceptions.

Further, unless your employer can establish that your termination was a direct result of willful misconduct, your benefits should continue.

I would strongly advise that you retain an attorney for your UC hearing. My rates for this hearing run from $200.00 to $300.00 depending on the amount of benefits at stake.

Good Luck
