Minnesota Unemployment Compensation Attorney

Unemployment Compensation

Unemployment compensation was enacted to assist those in need of financial assistance while they have been laid off, or are presently unemployed.  Unemployment compensation was intended to act as a temporary solution for unemployment, and is meant to help unemployed workers until they are able to return to the workforce.  Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development governs unemployment compensation in the state of Minnesota.

Eligibility for Unemployment Compensation

Your former employer can, and often does, contest unemployment insurance.  What does this amount to?  You could be denied financial assistance when you desperately need it.  If you need assistance in filing an unemployment claim, or are having difficulty getting your claim accepted, please contact one of our Employment Law attorneys at Tarshish Cody, PLC.

Tarshish Cody, PLC can assist you with every phase of unemployment compensation, such as:

  • Claim Denials
  • Assistance for terminated employees
  • Filings and Claims
  • Severance Packages
  • Assistance for employees who have been laid off or furloughed
  • Hearing and Appellate representation

Compensation for Laid Off or Terminated Employees

Getting laid off, terminated, or being made redundant can be incredibly stressful.  These kind of things seem to only happen at the most inconvenient times; whether it’s during the holidays, when the bills are due, or when you have a lot of new expenses.  You are probably looking for other work, but it could take weeks, months, or years to find a new job.  Especially in areas with little work available, or a high unemployment rate, it can be a struggle.  Just because something happened beyond your control, such as your employer downsizing, does not mean you are helpless.  It is probable that you are entitled to unemployment compensation.  Some people may think that there are no options, or that they don’t qualify for unemployment benefits, but you might be surprised. Contact Tarshish Cody, PLC today for your free consultation.  Depending on the terms of your case, you could be eligible for contingency based payment. We welcome your call today at 952-361-5556 (or fill out the free case evaluation form below) to help you through the legal issues of your Unemployment Compensation case.
