California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
Received unemployment for 2 months; lost first 2 appeals w/o having to repay. Lost final appeal to CUIAB. Former employer is lying about being discharged for misconduct. I hired an attorney for the 'final' appeal. CUIAB found the credibility of the HR person (since demoted), the president (since fired) more valid. Doctor supported reasons for appearing impaired due to meds was submitted too late. My ex-employee has no concrete evidence (i.e.-tests, documentation, etc.) only hearsay. What can I do? File a writ of mandamus?
