Work/Unemployment

Do you need to know about collecting unemployment benefits if you quit or were fired from your job? Do you have a criminal record and an upcoming job interview? Do you need to take time off for a pregnancy or to care for a sick family member?

Do you need help with an unemployment matter?

Call the Statewide Legal Services (SLS) hotline at 1-800-453-3320 and SLS will take your application for legal assistance. People in the Greater New Haven area are encouraged to apply. Even if New Haven Legal Assistance can’t take your case, they may be able to refer you to a law school clinic that provides free legal representation at unemployment hearings.
