    Duquesne University School of Law, Tribone Center for Clinical Legal Education - Unemployment Compensation ClinicThe Unemployment Compensation Clinic focuses on unemployment compensation matters for low-income clients.

All students represent multiple clients over the course of the clinic and therefore have the opportunity to develop and hone their trial advocacy skills.

    Philadelphia Unemployment Project - Unemployment CompensationThe Philadelphia Unemployment Project is a membership organization of low-wage workers and the unemployed. PUP has fought for jobs and for economic justice since 1975. We are also an unemployed workers center that helps people win unemployment cases, save their houses, and get access to health care. The unemployment compensation system is designed to ease the transition period from one job to another when a worker loses a job through "no fault of his/her own." Workers and their employers pay taxes into the unemployment compensation system to support unemployment benefits. A person who has recently been separated from his or her employment due to layoff will be eligible for unemployment compensation benefits if they have sufficient earnings. Workers who are fired or who quit may be eligible as well.Philadelphia112 North Broad Street Philadelphia, PA (Unemployment Compensation)Philadelphia Unemployment Project
