Employer Advocacy Program

Free Legal Representation

The DC Chamber provides attorneys to guide business owners and nonprofit leaders operating in the city through the Unemployment Compensation (or Unemployment Insurance – UI) litigation process at the Department of Employment Services (DOES) and the Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH).

The Employer Advocacy Program (EAP) will match you with an attorney who can help you through the appeal process if a former employee is attempting to claim unemployment benefits that you want to challenge.

Free seminars are offered quarterly and EAP advises on HR methods, separations (terminations and resignations), and UI hearing preparation.
