Even during prosperous times, employment termination means unemployment compensation claims. In today`s tough economic times the stakes are even higher. Liability on a claim is costly to an employer. The welfare of workers and their families is at stake when a claim is contested.

Join them as they explain all of the issues involved in an unemployment compensation case, and offer practical tips for claimant`s and employer`s counsel alike.
Specific topics include basic unemployment compensation practice and procedure, including evidentiary rules; federal extension benefits; discharges due to willful misconduct; voluntary quits, including those caused by health and family issues; the "able and available for work" standard; self employment/independent contractors; relief from charges; overpayments; and effective appellate advocacy.
