Kelley Drye’s New York office hosted the Volunteers of Legal Service’s (VOLS) training event for its "Unemployment Insurance Advocacy Project."
The project provides pro bono legal services to individuals who have lost their jobs and subsequently been denied unemployment insurance benefits. Lawyers participating in the project will represent clients at hearings before administrative law judges and may appeal adverse rulings to the Unemployment Insurance Appeal Board.
The training provided a detailed discussion of the unemployment insurance benefit hearing process including information on representing clients at administrative hearings.
VOLS is dedicated to providing pro bono civil legal services to benefit those in need in New York City in the areas of family law, insurance benefits and business law matters.
