Diverse Experience – Trusted Counsel

Unemployment Compensation

Preparing a defense to an unemployment compensation claim occurs before the claim is ever filed in terms of the way circumstances leading up to and surrounding termination are handled. At Thomson, Rhodes & Cowie, P.C., we assist employers in developing documentation, warning and progressive discipline policies and procedures and implementing effective post-claim handling strategies, which significantly increase an employer’s chances of prevailing on a claim without attorney involvement. In cases when an attorney is necessary, we are experienced in defending claims, including appeals before the Unemployment Compensation Board of Review (UCBR), the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania and the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.
