Have an Unemployment Claim in San Diego, Poway, Chula Vista, La Mesa, Carlsbad, Santee, Escondido, San Marcos, Encinitas, Ramona, Coronado or Del Mar? What is Misconduct Under California Unemployment Law?

Although I cannot provide legal advice on California law, I can pass along some basic legal principles I learned from researching the relevant law.  This task is made easier because California’s Unemployment processes and rules are rather similar to those in Pennsylvania.

For example, a claimant can be denied benefits only if he/she was terminated "for just cause" (i.e. misconduct)

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. I can assure you, having an attorney represent you at such a Hearing is often the difference between winning and losing your claim.

Victim of Discrimination?
Finally, Unemployment Hearings in California, like those in Pennsylvania, often yield sworn testimony from employer 
witnesses.  This testimony can later be used to your great advantage during the prosecution of claims for illegal discrimination, retaliation, wrongful termination, etc.  An experienced attorney is essential to skillfully executing such a strategy.  Our San Diego attorney frequently prosecutes such claims, and will be able to adroitly navigate you through any litigation process as needed.
