Vigorously guiding you through the unemployment compensation filing process
After you lose your job, unemployment insurance benefits can provide a financial cushion while you actively seek new employment. If you were terminated from your job as a result of job elimination or a layoff, you may be eligible for unemployment compensation. The lawyers at A. Beckert at Law help terminated employees obtain the financial compensation owed to them when their applications for unemployment benefits are denied or their former employers challenge their rights to compensation.

In Illinois, the ex-employee must meet the following conditions in order to be eligible for unemployment compensation:

Must have lost the job through no fault of his or her own or for "good cause" such as gender, age or ethnic harassment or unsafe working conditions
Must have worked long enough and earned enough to qualify in Illinois
Must be physically able to work
Must not be self-employed or a student
Must not be on strike

Our thorough knowledge of Illinois unemployment benefits laws enables us to effectively analyze your claim and provide skillful representation in unemployment hearings.

In general, the Illinois unemployment insurance agency does not deny unemployment benefits unless a claim is contested by an employer. If your claim has been contested, it is within your right to obtain a hearing before an Unemployment Compensation Referee. It is very important to have an experienced and diligent lawyer represent you at this hearing because it is your one and only chance to make your case for why you should get benefits.

Our experienced attorneys can help you collect and present evidence such as:

Federal and state laws about workplace safety and health standards that may apply to your case
Employee testimony about work demands or workplace conditions
Witness testimonies from employees, friends and family members with whom you have discussed your work situation
Written records such as company handbooks, manuals, employment contracts and your personnel file
If your case is appealed to the unemployment agency because you or your employer disagree with the decision resulting from the hearing about your case, our attorneys are ready and able to bring new insight to past evidence.

Don't leave your potential rights to financial compensation to chance. Contact experienced unemployment compensation attorneys at A. Beckert at Law to help you prepare for your unemployment hearing. Call A. Beckert at Law at 773-295-1477 or contact us online to schedule a at our Chicago office.
