California Employment Law
Have California Employment Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer.
I suggest an Appeal never hurts. I suggest you appeal and then it shows that you do not agree entirely with what is being alleged
You may still have to pay, you may get the amount reduced or you may have it waived altogether depending on what you present on appeal.
But if you simply and merely pay without argument then yes, it says "Im guilty as charged"
Okay so appeal but say I did not intend to fraud?
That is what the appeal will be based on. No intent to commit fraud
You have a strange career path for all intents and purposes and as you state it is not something you can document accurately all the time. There was no intent on your part to defraud or steal any money from the state via the EDD
If you appeal and lose, they will make you pay the money back
How do I provide proof on non intention if my reasoning or misunderstanding is what got me into this situation?
It's not the money its a reputation thing
Okay. And just saying that simple phrase is enough?
You can provide character references that you are an honest person. And also be specific as to any statements they are referring to
If you are a performer then I suggest you show what you have done in the way of looking for work, or if you have any pay from any gigs
Okay. Thank you. I appeciate your time.
Well, there are a number of appeals and remember if you owe the EDD only wants their money
I do have pay from residuals as a loan out that is what was confusing
They are not out to persecute anyone and so most times it is just Pay the Money owed
So there is no harm in making the appeal.
okay I just didn't agree with the willfully false statement part of their determinaation
Okay thank you.
Can I get a transcript of our congo?
Correct. And that is simply "boiler plate" language they use
Got it. Well it's scary to read
