Michigan Unemployment Lawyers
In Michigan, an employee who has been fired or forced to quit his or her job will be eligible for unemployment benefits unless that employee was fired for “misconduct.” If an employer alleges that an employee was terminated for “misconduct,” and the employee disagrees, then the State of Michigan must make a determination during a hearing before an administrative law judge as to whether the employee committed misconduct or whether the employee qualifies for unemployment benefits.
Meroueh & Hallman specializes in representing both employees and employers in unemployment hearings with a very high success rate. If your claim for unemployment benefits has been denied, you have a certain amount of time to file an appeal to that denial and schedule a hearing. The same applies if a claim for unemployment benefits has been issued against your company and you or your company intends to challenge that employee’s claim.
If you have had a decision go against you in front of an administrative law judge, you can still appeal to the circuit court in which the employment took place, but such appeal must be done timely.
If you have an upcoming hearing in person or over the telephone, or just want to ask a few questions about your claim or about a claim that an employee has made against your business, call us now!
