Pennsylvania Wrongfully Denying Unemployment Benefits for Some Parents

March 1st, 2021

A recent analysis of unemployment claims in Pennsylvania shows that thousands of parents who left the workforce to focus on childcare have been wrongfully denied benefits. The application forms do not provide enough room for many to thoroughly explain their decision, which can lead to delays or denial of unemployment benefits. 

Government workers processing millions of claims may not be able to individually scrutinize each application for the reasoning and respond to claimants properly. While benefits may be approved months later, many go through hardships during the delays and are forced to catch up on months of bills once they collect. For single parents, the delay is even worse as they are often the sole providers for their children. According to Maegan Wagner, a single parent, there is nobody to fall back on.

It can be difficult to find a course of action when trying to overcome obstacles to obtain unemployment benefits. Sidney L. Gold & Associates, P.C. has served clients throughout the years in claims involving reduction of force, no-fault separation, and good cause cases that include leaving work for childcare reasons.
