About This Course:
After a termination, many employers focus on defending against a possible discrimination charge or a lawsuit. Unfortunately, they may pay scant attention to defending against the unemployment compensation claim.

Those employers, albeit mistakenly, believe unemployment compensation benefits will be awarded no matter what they do - so why bother? Not so.

This webinar will assist you in defending against unemployment compensation claims. You will learn the importance of effectively completing the unemployment compensation questionnaire, drafting thorough documentation, effectively presenting your side of the story, the selection of effective witnesses and the art of cross-examining the ex-employee and his or her witnesses.

This information is critical for you to reduce your unemployment compensation claim costs by succeeding in the unemployment compensation arena.
