Thank you, LegalPro54! You are the best. While I was hoping for a different answer, I appreciate your honesty and compassion. You'll probably hear from me again as soon as I think of another question.
Take care ...
My former employer has informed me they will not contest or attend the EDD hearing. Should I believe them? I'm suspicious my former employer wants to keep me off guard.
If my former employer does not show up at the EDD hearing is it safe to assume that the decision to reverse denial of benefits will be decided in my favor, that there won't be a reason to continue with the hearing? From your past responses, the burden of proof is on the employer. Can my former employer provide their evidence to EDD?
