Unemployment Benefits

Securing Your Unemployment Benefits

In the current economy, millions of Americans are forced out of work and unable to collect a paycheck. Even those with significant job experience could suffer the long-term detriment of job loss or unemployment. When you and your family are in need of financial assistance, you may be entitled to unemployment benefits. Martin D. Haverly, Attorney at Law, are experienced employment lawyers focused on helping our clients recover the unemployment benefits assistance they need.

Call (302) 529-0121 today or contact me by e-mail for a consultation to discuss your case. We offer experienced, strategic and compassionate legal advocacy focused on your rights and interests.

Making a Claim for Your Benefits

When you are pursuing unemployment benefits, it is important to work with an experienced and trusted attorney. We will take the time to review your case, collect all necessary documentation and aggressively pursue your claim with the Delaware Department of Labor or the Equal Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

You may have faced challenges with an employer who initially fought against your claim for benefits. It is important that you know you do not have to fight for your claim on your own. The sooner you consult with an attorney, the more likely you are to preserve and achieve your goals in your claim.

Unemployment Benefits and Discrimination Claims

Many people do not realize the interconnectedness of unemployment benefits claims and discrimination claims. When you are filing for unemployment benefits, you could also potentially be able to file for discrimination. For instance, wrongful termination often leads to an attempt to claim unemployment benefits.

We will take the additional necessary steps to ensure that you seek the full benefits you are entitled to, either through a legal case against your employer or though the Delaware Department of Labor. As your attorneys, our primary objective is to secure the financial income you and your family need after suffering discrimination or unemployment. We handle cases involving:

  • Wrongful termination
  • Discrimination based on race, gender, sexual preference, religion, pregnancy or medical conditions
  • Denied benefits claims
  • FMLA and disability

Focused, Strategic Advocacy to Protect Your Benefits

When necessary, we will initiate an investigation, contacting witnesses, employees, former employees and others who will be able to assist in building your case or claim. We will review records including employment policies and procedures, e-mails, statements and other documentation necessary to support your claim. At every stage, we will remain aware of your individual needs and work to secure the results that you and your family deserve.
