New Jersey employees trying to collect unemployment are facing serious challenges. Employees pay insurance premiums from every pay check to secure unemployment benefits, yet both employers and the State are increasingly seeking to prevent employees from collecting those benefits. Part of the reason is because unemployment claims are now more valuable than ever; benefits now reach a maximum of over $640.00 per week and can last for 26 weeks or more. These benefits are charged against the employer, whose rates can be raised if the claims exceed the amount paid in by the employer.
