Experience and Focused On Unemployment
At the Law Office of Kenneth P. Carp we are the employer’s attorney and are uniquely qualified to assist with employer unemployment tax issues. We have represented businesses as small as one employee to companies such as Wal-Mart. Attorney Kenneth Carp — our founder and a retired Air Force Lieutenant Colonel — works with human relations departments and business owners to combat unemployment taxes on a daily basis. Unlike actuarial firms such as TALX and Employers Edge, we provide “Continuity of Care” and personalized attention.
Unemployment Hearings Require Strong Evidence
Having unemployment benefits denied for a discharged employee involves more than showing that a policy or handbook provision was violated. A good business decision to discharge an employee does not mean an appeal judge or appeal referee will deny benefits. If you discharged an employee, you generally must prove willful and intentional misconduct, which is not as easy as it sounds. Even if you have the right conduct for a denial of benefits, you must be able to prove it at the hearing, which is where many employers make a mistake. Employers must have the right witnesses and right evidence in order to have unemployment benefits denied.
