Just to clarify -- the COBRA notice referenced 75 "end of employment" date. The HR person emailed that that date came from me -- not them. Because I referenced an "effective termination date" of 7/5 -- they took that to be a "voluntary termination".
Outside of discussion of that COBRA letter, no one from the company has ever said anything about termination or end of employment.
I consulted Tina on that date -- and a Deputy Labor Commissioner. Both agreed on 7/5 because it was the last day I performed any work.
I think this legal counsel is involved because they want to make some kind of offer (she contacted me yesterday saying that they wanted some kind of "resolution" by next week -- which was improvement over last month when she emailed saying she didn't know why I was writing to her as she no longer worked for my co.)
So can a company really get away with no pay & no communication indefinitely? Can they argue that I am still employed?
