If you were fired from your job, or quit for good cause, you may be entitled to unemployment benefits. The Division of Employment Security (DES) will review your application and make a determination as to whether you qualify for benefits.
Unfortunately, many people who are legally entitled to unemployment benefits have their claims denied.
At the St. Charles law office of Flesner Wentzel, we help clients appeal their denied claims in front of the Appeals Tribunal and the Labor Commission to obtain the unemployment benefits they are entitled to.
St. Louis Denied Unemployment Benefits Lawyers
In Missouri, unemployment benefits, or unemployment insurance, are available to individuals who either lost their jobs but were not fired for misconduct in connection with work or left their jobs for good cause.

If your employer is claiming you were fired for bad behavior, we will investigate the circumstances to prove you were not fired for fault.
Together, we will get you the unemployment benefits you deserve.
