Can a lawyer help me with EDD?
Can a lawyer help me with EDD? California’s EDD fails to deliver benefits to hundreds of thousands of qualified claimants each year. For this reason, we built a team of experienced unemployment benefits lawyers to advocate for you. If you disagree with an EDD decision concerning your unemployment claim you have a right to file an appeal.
How do I appeal an EDD successfully? You have the right to appeal the EDD’s decision to reduce or deny you benefits. You must submit your appeal in writing within 30 days of the mailing date on the Notice of Overpayment (DE 1444) or Notice of Determination and/or Ruling (DE 1080CZ).
How long does an appeal take for EDD? In a written response, the EDD told ABC10 it is taking “approximately 4-6 weeks” for it to review appeals cases for potential redetermination and avoid further appeals.
Can you sue the EDD office? Besides, there are no provisions in the law allowing you to sue the EDD for what you believe to be taxpayer harassment. You cannot recover fees from the EDD.
