Wage & Hour and Unemployment Compensation
In Wisconsin, workers have rights that extend beyond protections from employment or workplace discrimination, harassment, and retaliation, or those provided by particular statutes such as the Wisconsin Fair Employment Act (WFEA), Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), or the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Former employees who are eligible for Unemployment Compensation can be denied unemployment benefits if the employee was terminated for “misconduct,” or “substantial fault,” among other reasons.
What does or does not constitute misconduct is often analyzed if unemployment benefits are denied, as well as other factors, such as whether the employee was actually terminated or whether the employee quit.
