Donate Your Time: Represent Claimants Seeking Unemployment Benefits

Wednesday, May 30, 2012 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Description:

Unemployment insurance is a critical safety net during periods of joblessness and representation at hearings often makes the critical difference in insuring that claimants get the unemployment benefits they need and deserve.  This program will guide you through the intricacies of the unemployment system and the information you need to represent clients at hearings.  As unemployed workers often cannot afford to hire a lawyer and cutbacks to legal services funding have resulted in reduced resources, you will be providing an invaluable service by volunteering through the Volunteer Lawyers Project to handle these cases. This is a joint project of Volunteer Lawyers Project and Greater Boston Legal Services.
