Lost Your Job? You May Be Entitled To Unemployment Benefits.
If you lost your job through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to unemployment benefits. Additionally, if you voluntarily terminated your employment due to a significant reduction in pay, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Unfortunately, obtaining rightful benefits can be challenging without the advice of a lawyer who is experienced in navigating the unemployment legal system.

Who Qualifies For Unemployment Insurance?
There are many different reasons that you may be eligible for unemployment insurance benefits, such as:
- You have a health condition or disability affecting your ability to work
- You received a reduction in pay greater than 15 percent
- You received a reduction in hours greater than 50 percent
Unemployment benefits can be obtained by filing a claim through the North Carolina Department of Commerce Division of Employment Security. While unemployment insurance benefits are typically approved, employers have a right to contest the decision at an administrative hearing.
We Will Fight For You
Unfortunately, even when you are justly entitled to unemployment compensation, your former employer may allege habitual tardiness, making claims of theft or present other arguments regarding alleged misconduct. This is a common practice by employers who want to avoid paying into the unemployment benefits.
