It is not uncommon for an employee to be discharged, or even forced to quit, and be denied EDD (unemployment) benefits. The initial denial is subject to an automatic appeal before an administrative law judge. For the employee, it is important to timely request such an appeal. Having competent and experience counsel in the appeal can make the difference between winning and losing the appeal. GED is proud to have successfully represented many fired employees and secured reversal of early decisions denying unemployment benefits.
