Good afternoon Cristina, I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. Yes, that is essentially what you will say. The magic language that will need to be provided to the employee, and to EDD if they enquire, is that the termination was by "Mutual Agreement." That will leave the employee eligible for unemployment benefits. If you have additional questions, you may reply back to me using the Reply to Expert link. Please also keep in mind that, even though you have already paid your deposit money over to JustAnswer, until you rate me highly for my service, I will not be paid for having assisted you with your questions. I wish you the best in your future. Doug
Just confirming this applies to CA laws right?
Also, can I get from you any pertinent paperwork for the meeting? Like a resignation letter or confidentiality agreement?
Good afternoon Christina, Yes, I was specifically giving you CA law. I'm sorry, but I don'[t have paperwork to give to you relating to the termination of your employee. That would be something that you should already have if the company has ever let an employee go---and in terms of the specialized agreements such as confidentiality or agreements not to solicit employees or customers---that would have to come from your company attorney. That is not something that I can provide for you because I am not your company’s attorney. I'm sorry. Thank you for your positive rating of my service. It has been my pleasure to assist you and I hope than you will ask for me on JustAnswer should a future need ever arise.

This is a great service. Will refer to other small business clients with no company attorney.
Thank you so much Cristina! I appreciate your kind words. Have a great weekend ahead,Doug
