Thank you for all the information. I am fully aware of the separation between EDD benefits and Workers' Comp. and the fact that EDD will now ask to be reimbursed by Workers' Comp of all monies paid to me. My question was because I lost part of my income due to the FORCED unemployment for exactly TEN months due to the extreme harassment.
The diagnosis on my Medical Evaluation by a QME is INJURY TO PSYCHE. I was just wondering if I have the right to be made whole. Also I was planning to request the right to continue to be treated by my current doctor. Thank you for clarifying that for me. Last, am I allowed to comunicate or contact the Judge in writing prior to the hearing to provide with all the documentation and evidence that I have or will I just be given the opportunity to present it at the time of the court hearing?
