The wife of a Navy servicemember seeks pro bono help with an employment matter. The client was unemployed due to the pandemic from March to June 2020. She received about $9,000 in unemployment during this time. The SC Department of Employment alleges that she filled out forms incorrectly, and that she was employed during this time, so it has ordered her to repay the full $9,000. She seeks assistance to appeal this matter before the upcoming deadline.
