With the onset of a new round of the economic recession, many are now applying for unemployment compensation every week, especially those who lost their jobs due to a sudden recession or economic decline. The reason for this is that unemployment benefits have not yet fully recovered from the recent recession. Due to the recent economic recession, more people have filed for weekly unemployment compensation in the US because of the recent coronavirus epidemic.
Many people filing for weekly unemployment are making few but vital mistakes which are causing them to be denied compensation. A common mistake made by these people is missing a specific time-frame when filing their claim for unemployment compensation. Most of the employers do not take into account the fact that an unemployed person is still receiving an income.
When it comes to filing an unemployment compensation claim, one of the most common mistakes made is failing to include any contact information, such as the company name, the address and the telephone number. Even if one has an email address, one should not include it in the claim form because there is no guarantee that the employer will provide you with employment information. If you have an email address, try sending an inquiry about your situation to your employer; if the employer fails to reply to you in less than 24 hours, it may be wise to hire the services of a specialist unemployment lawyer.
Once your claim is approved, it is important to ensure that you report the case to your unemployment lawyer immediately. It is very difficult to claim for the lost salary because the employer does not even know you are unemployed. Therefore, when you report your case, try to explain the reason why your salary was not recovered. Your lawyer will be able to provide you with accurate advice regarding how you can reclaim your salary from your employer.
Another mistake that many are committing when filing for weekly unemployment is filing with a wrong type of information. Most employers check the unemployment number to see if there is a valid claim. However, the unemployment amount only tells a part of the whole story. It would be best if you include other relevant details such as your job profile, educational qualification, training and experience, as well as other relevant information such as any skills you may have acquired while working.
Unemployment compensation claims are never easy to win; they require time and effort. If you do not file your claim properly, the employer will probably ignore your case.
