Employers often fight aggressively to prevent a former employee from collecting unemploymnet benefits after discharging them. The reason is simple: Unemployment is paid through an insurance policy underwritten by the State of New Jersey. But employers don’t pay the premium unless and until benefits are paid to a claimant. For financial reasons, many employers will go out of their way to say the claimant was “fired for cause” and therefore not eligible to receive the weekly benefit checks.
If you were discharged from your job and your unemployment benefits have been denied, you have the right to file an appeal through the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development. But appeals often mean overcoming the objection of your former employer. That means standing up and fighting for your rights.
