Paul, Weiss Obtains Victory for Pro Bono Client in VOLS Unemployment Insurance Case

Paul, Weiss obtained a victory in an unemployment insurance case with its pro bono partner Volunteers of Legal Service (VOLS). As a participant in the VOLS unemployment insurance advocacy project, the firm represents clients whose employers have objected to their receipt of unemployment insurance benefits.

The New York State Department of Labor had initially denied our client unemployment benefits, determining that he had committed misconduct by leaving his post unattended while on duty. After a hearing, however, the administrative law judge overruled the Department of Labor's determination and held that our client was entitled to benefits.

The Paul, Weiss team included litigation associate Frank D'Angelo, who was supervised by litigation partner David Brown.
