Have California Employment Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer.
Good morning Glenn, I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please. 1. Would you please explain what you mean by your question? Individuals are not responsible for unemployment claims made by employees, and independent contractors are not entitled to unemployment benefit from the companies they contract with. When you have responded fully to my inquiry, I will be in a better position to fully answer your question, so please do not rate my service to you until we have concluded out communication here. Doug

In an attempt to assist you in understanding the process here I also stated: When you have responded fully to my inquiry, I will be in a better position to fully answer your question, so please do not rate my service to you until we have concluded out communication here. If you would respond to my inquiry, I will be able to answer your question. Doug
