will the fact that his orders were before our marriage and that i continued employment in CA while he was in TN hurt my case to the UI board?
We were engaged in 2010 when he was given PCS orders from Fort Rucker to Fort Campbell. He was deployed to Afghanistan in 2011 for a year. During that time, i took employment in CA. He is currently located as a 'geo-bachelor' in TN while i am located (civilian) in CA.
We were married May 2012, and i have attempted multiple times to approach my employer about working remotely or as a contractor or trying to work anything out that would allow me to keep my employment and still see my husband. currently we only see each other once a month.
Since his orders were before we were married, and time has elapsed since our marriage, i'm worried the CA statue could be argued in this situation. I wonder if my attempts with my employer on top of showing that my type of employment (flight test engineering) is not available in the area (even though i am able and willing) would be enough to approach the CA UI with a winning argument to claim UI until i can find something (anything actually. :) in TN.
i'm worried that if i take a case to the UI board and they discuss it with my employer, it could burn a bridge...and i don't want to burn a bridge and not win. :)
Do you have any recommendations for what to advertise and what to be discreet about when i file my claim?
I'm still currently employed, and will be giving a four week notice shortly. I'm assuming I will have to apply after my employment has been terminated. Are there any items to support my claim that i may want to line up? (meeting times, or conversations with the boss, etc)
