California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
Thank you for responding so quickly. When I spoke with a DLSE contact, she said I should consider it a termination for the claim form since he essentially terminated me on the 23rd. If it is considered a resignation, how many days would I be entitled to?
Of course he had to make things complicated by not responding immediately to my resignation. Do I state that I was terminated on the 19th my last official working day or on Tuesday the 23rd the day he said he would not honor my two week notice.
Should I be conservative and say the 23rd in order to try to avoid having this throw out my claim. If I use the 23rd, I feel I should be paid for Monday the 22nd (he paid for the 15th through the 19th). Can I make a claim for the one day and request the waiting time penalties for the other days?
Thank you so much for your insight. One last thing. On the DLSE form itself, the business is based in Washington, but I was a Regional Sales Manager in California on line 17 (Part 3 of the claim form) should I list my home address as the address I worked from. There are no physical locations for my previous employer in California.
