Denied Unemployment Claims In Rhode Island
Unemployment is a common problem for many people, especially in today’s difficult economy. Many of those who lose their jobs turn to employment insurance as a way to maintain their financial independence as they search for another job.
Unfortunately, receiving these benefits is not always easy. If you and a former employer are engaged in a dispute over unemployment benefits, it is important that you seek out assistance from a skilled attorney.
I am Woonsocket denied unemployment claims attorney David Bagus, and I have more than 18 years of legal experience representing Rhode Island employees. I can guide you through your unemployment dispute, providing personalized legal advice on every step of the way.
Disputing Your Employer’s Accusations
Former employees are often denied unemployment benefits due to accusations of workplace misconduct. Not all such accusations are valid, however. If your former employer has accused you of committing a fireable offense, you don’t have to accept its version of events. As your attorney, I will help you present your case to the government, aggressively protecting your rights and interests.
I can also help if you quit your previous job under duress. Normally, those who leave a company voluntarily cannot collect unemployment. In some cases, however, employers attempt to force a worker to leave the company by subjecting him or her to harassment or mistreatment. If you have been a victim of this behavior, you have a right to receive unemployment benefits.

Many unemployed workers are reluctant to hire a lawyer, fearing that they will not be able to afford the cost of representation. Under Rhode Island law, however, legal fees for successful unemployment claims are paid by the state, not the employee. This allows Rhode Island workers to pursue their claims at no financial risk.
