Why attend?An unemployment insurance (UI) hearing is a
high-stakes endeavor for your client and his or her family. UI, a critical
safety net during periods of joblessness, is especially important now to help
workers and their families during this recession. This seminar will provide you
with the expertise you need in order to help your clients get the UI benefits to
which they are legally entitled. Unemployed workers often cannot afford to
retain the services of the private bar, and therefore you will provide an
invaluable service to your client as a pro bono or legal services
representative. Our expert panel guides you through the intricacies of the
entire UI system from eligibility criteria through the appeals process,
including presentation of a mock UI hearing.
