Can I still fight for my Massachusetts employment case? Posted on February 01, 2011
I appealed and lost an unemployment case due to "deliberate misconduct". All past MA cases emphasize "deliberate" as being necessary to prove and it clearly means intent. Neither the employer or DUA ever made a single statement even implying intent/deliberateness. I appealed to the Board of Review and won. Employer is now appealing in District Court. I have never been in court, and the amount at stake is too low to me to justify a lawyer (roughly $5k, as I only claimed for a short time). Is it viable for me to fight on my own? Feel the case is solid, especially since Board agreed with me. Any advice?
