With unemployment rates skyrocketing due to COVID-19 related closures, many unemployment offices are overwhelmed. We have been fielding many calls about unemployment hearings and appeals and, as Texas employee rights lawyers, we are here to help!
If your former employer denies your right to unemployment benefits, the Texas Workforce Commission will require a telephonic hearing during which witnesses will testify. Almost all employers are represented by counsel, so it’s beneficial to have an attorney on your side as well to present your case. If you are denied unemployment compensation, there will be an appeal with a new hearing during which witnesses will again be presented and cross-examined. There are also a number of deadlines and documentation requirements that must be met along the way. While it’s possible to handle an unemployment hearings and appeals on your own, you may be at a disadvantage without an experienced attorney.
