More than a Quarter of Unemployment Claims are Disputed

According to the Washington Post the amount of unemployment insurance claims that are being disputed is reaching record highs---Over a quarter people filing for unemployment are having their former employer say that they either were fired for cause or quit.

The employer has incentive to dispute claims because the amount that they are taxed is partly based on the number of employees they have laid-off.
