Legal Services Program


The Legal Services Program (LSP) serves claimants and small emplo​yers regarding an Appeal hearing​ or Board of Review (Spanish​) matter. Typically, the decisions and orders that are appealed relate to eligibility and chargeability for unemployment insurance benefits, appealable tax determinations, and other matters.

If you are interested in this legal service, call the applicable telephone number​ right away after receiving a ruling against you or notice of an appeal. Any delay in calling could result in your not being able to obtain this service. Normal working hours are from 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Program Services Include:

  • Up to one hour of free consultation with a LSP attorney regarding your case, and
  • if the attorney determines that you have a valid claim or defense, the LSP attorney will also represent you in an appeal hearing and at the Board of Review.
