The unemployment appeal winning streak continues. Oklahoma unemployment attorney, James M. Wirth, has now won 14 of the last 14 unemployment appeals he has handled. Most of these cases overruled previous denials of unemployment benefits for Wirth Law Office clients.
In the majority of the cases, Mr. Wirth was able to prevent the employer from meeting its burden to establish that the employee was terminated for “misconduct” as defined by Oklahoma case law. But, in some of the cases, the Wirth Law Office client left the employment voluntarily and Mr. Wirth had to establish that there was a good cause basis to quit.
