Florida Unemployment Appeals - Call Toll Free: (877) 730-5180
At Weldon & Rothman, PL, we  will vigorously defend your entitlement to receive unemployment
compensation.  When confronted with an unemployment claim, employers will often attempt to wrongfully
prevent your claim by lying, distorting what happened, and using highly paid representatives, attorneys,
and skillful or tricky questioning to try to stop you.

If the claims adjudicator has denied your claim, and you believe you are entitled to receive benefits, please
file an Appeal immediately, and a Referee will be assigned to hear your case.  If your employer is wrongly
appealing, do not go to the hearing unrepresented.  The stakes are high, as you may be forced to pay back
all of the unemployment compensation you received.  

Whether you or your employer have filed an Appeal, call us and arrange for us to represent you.  The
Unemployment Appeals hearing is an adversarial proceeding, wherein the Referee will examine you, the
employer's witnesses, and the available evidence.  Importantly, during the Unemployment Appeals
hearing, you will also be given the opportunity to examine your employer's witnesses, and the employer's
representative will be given the opportunity to examine you.  You can offer witnesses, documentary
evidence, legal and/or factual reasons as to why you are entitled to receive benefits, and make a closing
statement.  The employer will have all of these same opportunities to try to block your claim.  

The Unemployment Appeals hearing before the Appeals Referee is generally the most critical step in the
process.  In most instances, this will be the only opportunity you have to introduce evidence to prove your
case and obtain the Unemployment Benefits you are entitled to receive.

Florida Unemployment Compensation law is highly complex, and the penalty for failing to navigate the law
correctly may be a denial of your benefits.  Do not try to go through the process alone.

At Weldon & Rothman, PL, we handle all unemployment proceedings from the initial Unemployment
Appeal before the Appeals Referee, to Appeals to the Unemployment Appeals Commission, to Appeals to
the District Court of Appeal.  We meet with you, prepare your case, and help walk you through the
complicated universe of unemployment benefits.  Immediate action is generally required.  Do not let your
employer prevent you from receiving the unemployment benefits you deserve.

Employers will look out for their own interests.  Let us look out for you.
