A Weak Employee Handbook Cannot Support Employer’s Case

Attorney Murphy is pleased to receive a favorable decision from the Department of Unemployment Assistance (DUA) for the matter of Nidir v. 1760 Society, Docket No. 580819.  Attorney Murphy’s client, Mr. Nidir, faced a contentious challenge to his claim for unemployment benefits.  Through extensive direct and cross examination of both Mr. Nadir and the former employer, Attorney Murphy successfully discredited and debunked the employer’s case.  Attorney Murphy exposed weaknesses in the employer’s workplace rules, policies, and employee handbook to such a degree that Mr. Nidir’s actions could not be viewed as deliberate misconduct in willful disregard of the employer’s interest as defined in G.L. c. 151A § 25(e)(2).
