Hi Joseph - thanks for your answer. I have been denied and will appeal. However, I am bringing a maritime and Jones Act claim against this employer in the 9th circuit for a laundry list of indiscretions. There was no misunderstanding and I have proof in the form of a company memo. By saying I did not complete my contractual obligations - it is a reflection on my professional competence and defamatory. I would like to include this in my initial complaint because of the possibility of res judicata - claim preclusion. What about testimony given in this circumstance (unemployment dept. questionnaire) being privileged?
I see the problem - they were made only to EDD. How about intentional infliction of emotional distress?
I was on a ship in China and coughing up blood and having trouble breathing. I was locked in a room and denied medical help for several days. So there are other incidents that reflect inten. inf. of emotional distress, false imprisonment etc. However, I am claiming that by making a false statement to EDD they intentionally inflicted emotional distress.
