  • McKeegan vs. Ohio Department of Job and Family Services

    Practice Area:
    Employee benefits
    Outcome:
    Client did not have to pay back his unemployment compensation and was able to collect his Ohio state tax refunds which were being held. (See letter from client below.)
    Description:
    A terminated worker was originally granted unemployment compensation by the Ohio Department of Job and Family services. The employer disputed the compensation and asked the ODJFS for a reconsideration which was denied. The employer subsequently filed an appeal with Unemployment Compensation Review Commission and a phone-hearing took place wherein worker did not have legal counsel. The hearing resulted in a reversal of the unemployment compensation that the employee had received and he was required to pay $13,000 back to the agency--money he had already spent to clothe, shelter and feed his family. This firm appealed the determination to the county's Common Pleas judge which resulted in a very rare ruling for the employee. Letter from client: Dear Neil, In the wake of the long trial and much prayed for decision in our favor, we are reflecting on the blessing you were to our family during a very difficult time for us. xxxx and I, along with our children are very, very grateful for all you did to help us obtain a just decision in our case. God knew we would need your help in order to see the truth prevail. You helped us, not just for now, but also for the future because this decision deeply impacts our family's financial situation. I am sincerely grateful to you for the sacrifices of time and effort you made in order to assist us. I know you went above and beyond the call of duty and I thank you. Please know that our family is praying for you and your family in a special way. May God bless you abundantly, now and always. Sincerely, xxxxxx McKeegan
