New Jersey Unemployment Lawyers

The United States Department of Labor offers Unemployment Insurance (UI) programs that provide unemployment benefits to eligible workers who become unemployed through no fault of their own.

Unemployed workers must meet certain eligibility requirements. The purpose is to provide temporary financial assistance. Recently, federal legislation extended the end dates of the Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) program and restores EUC benefits retroactive to June 2, 2010, and extends the program through November 30, 2010. However the maximum remains at 99 weeks of unemployment benefits.

The new bill does not continue the subsidy for COBRA. If your claim is denied under the Unemployment Compensation Law and Temporary Disability Law, you have the right to file an appeal.  For more information or to obtain counsel regarding an unemployment claim or question, please contact the Employment Law attorneys at Einhorn Harris.
