Don’t just accept an unemployment case-fight it
During the course of managing a practice, you’ll likely have to argue an unemployment insurance case at least once. You may think it futile to even try to win suits like these, but that’s not always the case. Sometimes not opposing a case can be costlier to your practice in the long run than arguing one, according to Ken Kruger, president of the Healthcare Human Resources Consulting Consortium, LLC, in New York City and T. Hensley Williams, JD, coprincipal of The Williams Group in Des Moines, IA. A former employee can collect unemployment insurance for up to 26 weeks, according to the Department of Labor.
