Frivolous claims for unemployment compensation can cost employers millions in higher premiums. At McCleskey, Harriger, Brazill & Graf, our lawyers know the importance of a comprehensive, rapid response to a terminated employee’s claim for unemployment. In most cases, we can successfully resolve the claim in its early stages.
Under the Texas Unemployment Compensation Act, an employee who is involuntarily terminated may not receive unemployment benefits if he or she was terminated for “misconduct.” The law, nevertheless, gives those terminated employees the right to file for unemployment benefits and appeal the claim through several levels.
From the first notice of a claim, our unemployment claims lawyers work to marshal all the relevant documentation and supporting testimony. Our attorneys have decades of experience representing employers before the Texas Workforce Commission, and we have the knowledge and expertise to ensure that our clients’ cases are made as persuasively and comprehensively as possible.
We also work with employers who are considering terminating an employee to ensure that they have proper documentation before the termination to justify their denial of unemployment benefits.
Our Texas unemployment claims lawyers have a reputation for integrity, a commitment to excellence, and deep roots in our community, going back for generations. Our goal is to help our clients succeed and prosper, long after their legal issues are resolved. By providing a full array of exceptional legal services to the businesses and individuals who make our community strong, we’re helping to ensure that the West Texas and New Mexico region remains a great place to call home.
