Denver, Colorado Unemployment Compensation Claim Attorney

We Have Affiliated With an Attorney in Denver Who Specializes in Unemployment Claims
The Mile High City

Unemployment benefits are very important to those in need.  Finding high quality, experienced lawyers who regularly handle such claims is not an easy task.  It took me some time, effort and background-checking, but I found an attorney who fit my criteria located in Denver.  Since Colorado Unemployment Hearings are conducted telephonically, he can represent citizens located anywhere in the state of Colorado. 

So, if you need a referral, call our office or complete our Referral Form, and we will (at no charge to you), connect you with a qualified, experienced attorney who has handled hundreds of unemployment hearings throughout Colorado (for what I find to be a very reasonable fee).

Have an Unemployment Claim in Denver, Colorado Springs, Aurora, Fort Collins or Lakewood? What is Misconduct Under Colorado Unemployment Law?

Although I am not able to provide legal advice on Colorado law, I am happy to pass along some basic legal principles I gleaned from researching the relevant law.  This task is made easier because my research has disclosed that unemployment claims in Colorado are rather similar to those in Pennsylvania in a number of important respects. For example, one is terminated for misconduct, one cannot get benefits.  However, just as in Pennsylvania, alleged poor performance is not deemed to be disqualifying misconduct under Colorado law.

In quit cases, the law in Colorado is similar to that in Pennsylvania where voluntary quits are concerned.  For example, a significant reduction in hours, work conditions or change in schedule occurring through no fault of your own may enable you to quit and get unemployment compensation.

The Hearing is the Key 
Colorado decides unemployment claims via a) an administrative claim process; b) a right to appeal from the administrative decision; and, most importantly, c) a Telephone Hearing before a Hearing Officer. Just as in Pennsylvania, having an attorney represent you at this all-important Hearing may be determinative to the outcome of your claim.

Subject of Discrimination?
Finally, Unemployment Hearings in Colorado, like those in Pennsylvania, can be fertile grounds for obtaining testimony under oath from employer witnesses - testimony that can later be used during the prosecution of claims for illegal discrimination, retaliation, wrongful termination, etc.  An experienced attorney is essential to skillfully executing such a strategy.  Our Denver attorney frequently prosecutes such claims, and will be able to skillfully navigate you through any litigation process as needed.
