After you receive notice a former employee has filed for unemployment benefits, you have to decide whether you want to contest the case. Depending on the specific circumstances of the employee leaving, you might want extra documentation to help boost your case. Background checks can help you win unemployment claims.
Unemployment insurance is meant to help those who are let go from a company at no fault of their own, due to lack of work or economic conditions. If a worker voluntarily leaves a company, it typically means they are not eligible to file for benefits.
