Unemployment Insurance -- Helping Out-of-Work Clients Navigate the Unemployment System

03/20/2018 - 1:00pm to 4:30pm
MCLE Conference Center, Ten Winter Place, Boston
Event type: 

Unemployment insurance (UI) is a critical safety net during periods of joblessness. This seminar provides you with the expertise you need to understand the UI system and to help your clients get the UI benefits to which they are legally entitled.

Our expert panel guides you through the entire UI system from eligibility criteria through the appeals process. (Unemployed workers often cannot afford to retain professional services in pursuing their claims, so if you are a non-legal services attorney, you can register to assist someone in need of help, and in doing so, qualify for reduced tuition.)

Training materials include the most recent edition of the Unemployment Advocacy Guide: An Advocate’s Guide to Unemployment in Massachusetts.

This training is co-sponsored by MLRI, GBLS, the Volunteer Lawyers Project, and the Labor and Employment Section of the Massachusetts Bar Association.

  • Attorneys signing up for Volunteer Lawyers Project's Unemployment Insurance Case ...$25

  • Margaret E. Monsell, Esq., Massachusetts Law Reform Institute, Boston
