Unemployment Insurance is much more than just responding to claims. While claims need to be responded to completely and in a timely manner, U.I. eligibility impacts and is impacted by many other employment functions. Industrial U.I.’s unemployment consultants advise on many employment topics and questions.  For example:

The specialized unemployment consultants are readily available to consult with clients on these and a host of other issues as to how they affect the unemployment insurance process.

Many of our clients use our firm as a sounding board to discuss potential disciplinary actions. While we do not represent our clients as attorneys in these matters, we have years of experience that can be helpful in evaluating such decisions. Clients also speak with our unemployment consultants on whether a particular incident will be considered misconduct if an employee is discharged and then how to proceed pre-termination to assure the greatest chance of success of a U.I. claim filing. Furthermore, we will advise when we think labor counsel needs to be consulted and will work with labor counsel as the need arises.
