August 9, 2011

Labor and Employment lawyers, Debbie Sandler and John Baker spoke at a joint labor and industry committee hearing on August 9, 2011 in Harrisburg, PA.  The hearing focused on House Bill 1754, which proposes to amend state unemployment compensation law to modify the standard for eligibility for those who quit their jobs.  The bill proposes to establish specific standards of misconduct for unemployment compensation referees to follow in situations where people are fired.  Sandler spoke about “willful misconduct” while Baker spoke about section 402b, which deals with the voluntary quit aspect, both of which are elements of the proposed new bill.
