Life Event: Losing a Job

Talk to a Local Labor And Employment Attorney

Over the last ten years, companies have been cutting jobs and laying off people to become leaner, increase the bottom line and compete in global markets. Current cuts like this haven't happened in a long time and more people than ever are claiming unemployment benefits. If you've never been laid off before, there's a lot to learn. There are also more options than ever before from contract work to starting your own business.
