At The Law Offices of Cyrus Mor, we offer professional legal services in all unemployment law and EDD issues.

We will make your case a priority, setting aside sufficient time to serve you and manage your case professionally.
Personalized, Cost-Effective Legal Counsel in EDD Issues and Unemployment Insurance
We don't hand off cases to an assistant, paralegal or legal secretary to deal with - you will be assisted by our Southern California unemployment law attorney throughout your relationship with our firm. Our personal service is a central component of how we operate. In unemployment legal matters, we plan carefully. The first step is to meet with you and review the details. After establishing the correct actions to take to resolve the matter, we do a run through of the hearing in preparation, and then we go to bat for you, fully prepared.
Our firm represents both employers and
employees in EDD and unemployment issues, including those such as filing for benefits, cases in which
benefits were denied, at unemployment hearings (CUIAB), appeals, cases of overpayment, and other important issues, including employee relations, and preventative law. We can address any issues related to
layoffs and other similar issues. There are many employee problems that can be avoided through documentation, training and having the correct processes and contracts in place. Our firm can help you protect against future claims and legal actions with preventative actions put in place, and we are here to help you.
Representation for Employers and Employees in Unemployment Law
As an employee, you have certain rights under state law, many of which fall under the jurisdiction of the EDD. You have a right to paid family leave, and to unemployment insurance, and to State Disability Insurance if you meet eligibility requirements. You may have had your unemployment benefits denied, due to information submitted by your employer. We serve as counsel for employees that have run into problems with UI benefits. To qualify, your wages must have been reported to the EDD. The period you were employed with the company you worked for will affect eligibility for UI insurance. The minimum benefits available are $40, and the highest, $450. The claim will be determined to be eligible based upon the prior year's employment. Another factor affecting unemployment insurance is exactly why you lost your job. We can review all of the issues surrounding your situation and advise you of what can be done to get this crucial matter resolved.
If you are an employer, you are well aware of the problems that can arise with employees who file claims. You can be put in a dangerous financial situation if you are accused of any violation of state employment law or the requirements for employers to warn of massive layoffs. You could be forced to pay damages if the employee is successful. Many employers have been backed into a corner and forced to settle with a disgruntled employee, as there did not appear to be any other way to resolve the problem. At our firm, we offer legal services for employers at rates that make it possible to do the right thing. Don't become a victim of an employee who is planning to make your life difficult. Our firm can manage every detail of the legal matter, and seek out the most positive resolution for you. We also can provide you with new documentation and processes that could protect you in the future.
