California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
Thank you for your response. It's a very difficult time...to say the least. He has become increasingly abusive, and I refuse to engage with him right now. His last texts to me were just cruel. He turned my phone off when I refused to come back in and help him. I am not even sure at this point if he will give me my final paycheck with my vacation pay.
Another co-worker phoned me yesterday saying that she quit due to his hostile behavior towards her. She is the 9th person in 6 months to either quit or get fired. She also told me that she is putting a letter together to send to the EDD for unstable working conditions.
My only question as I am filling out my unemployment application is what do I say in the reason for no longer working brief explanation box. I want to make sure that legally I don't say anything wrong. Of the 9 people who are no longer with the company, three of them filed with the EDD as "hostile environment".
Please advise when you have a moment.
I want to allege he fired me, which in fact he did and I have it on texts.
What would I say for that?
Thank you for the link to the referrals.
