Unemployment benefits are a financial lifeline for many millions of Americans. For people who have lost their job, unemployment benefits can fill the financial void left by a missing paycheck. Oftentimes, employers will falsely claim that an employee was terminated due to misconduct in order to keep unemployment insurance premiums low. If your former employer is challenging your eligibility for unemployment benefits, consider talking to our Virginia employment attorneys.
