Sixth different Appeals Court in which Morris E. Fischer, Esq. has prevailed.
On behalf of Morris E. Fischer, LLC posted in Unemployment on March 27, 2015
Yesterday, we obtained a winning opinion in an appeal in The Court of Special Appeals of Maryland, making that the sixth different Appeals Court in which Morris E. Fischer, Esq. has prevailed. The case, Staffing Alternatives, Inc. v. Marilyn Saunders, No. 0109, dealt with a Maryland citizen first denied unemployment benefits for gross misconduct. The Circuit Court reversed and the Maryland Court of Special Appeals affirmed the reversal, holding that an employee who surfed the internet at work a handful of times did not commit gross misconduct to deny benefits.
It was truly a team effort from our law firm. The case spanned almost two years with the employer fighting us every inch of the way. My staff and I didn't let up, matching every resource the company placed against our client. Congratulations to my associate Michael Fallings who successfully orally argued his first Appeal.
