Have an Unemployment Claim in Sacramento, Davis, Woodland, Fair Oaks, Land Park, Folsom, Rocklyn or Roseville? What is Misconduct Under California Unemployment Law?

Although I am unable to provide legal advice on California law, I can 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 California are rather similar to those in Pennsylvania in a number of important respects. 

For example, a claimant can be denied benefits only if he/she was terminated due to "misconduct."  This is, of course, one of the more common areas of dispute in unemployment compensation cases.

"Bad Grades" Not Disqualifying,
Provided You Were Trying Your Hardest
Moreover, if you were terminated due to alleged poor performance, you are in many cases able to received Unemployment Benefits under California law.  Be aware, though, this is a common area of dispute, and employers are well- schooled on how to make your alleged poor performance appear to be the product of your laziness, insubordination, etc., which are disqualifying factors.  Thus, "poor performance" cases are certainly matters in which you would benefit from having counsel!

California decides unemployment claims via a) an administrative claim process; b) a right to appeal from the administrative decision; and, most importantly, c) a Hearing before an Administrative Law Judge. Just as in Pennsylvania, having an attorney represent you at this all-important Hearing may spell the difference between winning and losing your claim.
