And with current financial conditions as they are, employers are trying to cut costs by fighting their former employees on the unemployment compensation they are entitled to receive. Furthermore, the employer may know how to disguise their motives in front of the Unemployment Referee (judge) to make it look like an employee was terminated or fired for willful misconduct, when in reality the employer had other reasons for terminating the employee, some of which may be unlawful under state or federal law.

It is crucial that you get important evidence on the record at your hearing -- you probably won’t get another chance at a later date.
