When faced with a legal problem, consulting with an attorney sooner rather than later will often save you time, trouble, and money in the end.
In Pennsylvania — as in every other state — employees who are temporarily out of work through no fault of their own may qualify for unemployment benefits. In order to qualify for these benefits, your past earnings must meet certain minimum thresholds; you must be unemployed through no fault of your own; you must be able and available to work; and you must show that you are actively seeking employment.
As in every situation, the above qualifications are subject to interpretation and often vary based on the unique facts of each case. For example, just because you may have been fired does not necessarily mean that you are forbidden from receiving UC benefits. Similarly, if you resign your position, you may still be entitled to UC benefits. These are just a couple of examples.
Therefore, it is important that you contact Hollinger Law Offices and tell us about your case. In Pennsylvania, the Department of Labor & Industry absolutely look at each situation on a case-by-case basis. They also apply legal decisions that have been used to interpret all of the qualifications mentioned above.
