Southern California Unemployment Compensation Benefit Attorneys

Following the termination of employment, many former employees rely on unemployment compensation provided by the State or Federal government. This form of temporary financial assistance, which is also known as unemployment insurance, is used to provide Americans with some form of money while they are unemployed.

The State of California has a system to determine eligibility for unemployment compensation, as well as a set amount of time for which eligible unemployed persons can collect unemployment compensation benefits and the amount they will receive. Typically, a person on unemployment may receive benefits for up to twenty six (26) weeks at a fraction of his or her pay. The following are just a few factors which are required to be eligible to receive unemployment benefits in California:

  • You must be unemployed
  • You must honestly and accurately fill out all unemployment paperwork
  • You must be ready and willing to work
  • You must be searching for new employment
  • You must report to the unemployment office to keep receiving unemployment benefits

There are also many factors which may cause disqualification of unemployment compensation, which include:

  • Declining to perform appropriate work
  • Not actively seeking employment
  • Not filing your unemployment compensation paperwork on time
  • Providing untrue information or lying in regards to your unemployment matter
  • Quitting your last job
