Unemployment Benefits Appeals
Unemployment Benefits Appeals Lawyer Charlotte, NC
You are probably at this website because you have an upcoming unemployment benefits appeals hearing with the Employment Security Commission of North Carolina (ESC). This is most likely as a result of your unemployment benefits being denied by your former employer, or you have been granted unemployment benefits but your former employer has appealed. Remington & Dixon, PLLC recognizes and understands the seriousness of this hearing and may be interested in representing you during your hearing.
Although you are not required to retain a lawyer for your hearing, it may be wise to have an unemployment benefits attorney represent you who knows the process. The hearings are usually done over the telephone, although sometimes they may be in person. A hearing officer, employed by the ESC, conducts the hearing much in the same way that a judge presides over cases in a courtroom. During the hearing, you will be sworn in, give testimony, and answer questions from the hearing officer and your former employer.
If you decide to hire us, we will then have the chance to question your former employer about your termination. The attorneys at Remington & Dixon, PLLC will make sure you are prepared during each step of the hearing.
Importance of Hiring an Unemployment Benefits Lawyer
It is very important that you participate in the hearing. If you are already receiving unemployment benefits and you do not participate in the hearing, your benefits will stop immediately. You may even be required to repay any benefits you have already received. Even if you have been denied unemployment benefits and have since found another job, you should still participate in the hearing. You may be able to receive back pay for the time that you were unemployed.
It is your right to have an attorney represent you in this hearing. Your former employer may already be represented by an attorney. However, you will not know until the hearing starts. Be aware that if you lose this hearing, you will probably not be granted another. Remington & Dixon, PLLC offers a reasonably priced consultation to discuss your case before your hearing.
Please call Remington & Dixon, PLLC at 704-247-7110 if you are interested in being represented by an attorney in your hearing. Everything we need to begin representing you can be handled over the telephone, unless you desire to meet with an attorney in person.
