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

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.
