We Are Employee Focused Litigators
The state of Washington provides unemployment benefits as a safety net for people who have lost their jobs. Subsidized by government funding, the Washington state system stipulates that people who have been laid off/terminated due to a business decision are entitled to receive weekly benefits. This continues until they find other employment, generally for up to 52 weeks. If the employee was terminated for cause or voluntarily, he/she has the right to challenge the claim, hoping to avoid paying unemployment insurance “taxes” that may be due, or avoid an increase in the following year’s costs paid into the system.

If you reside in the South Puget Sound region and have been denied Washington state unemployment benefits, talk to an attorney at Cordes Brandt, PLLC, in Olympia. We know the strategies employers often use to refute their liability for unemployment. In many cases, employees are let go when business turns bad, only to have their employer make unsubstantiated claims of frequent tardiness, poor quality of work or even pilferage.
