California Employment Law
Have California Employment Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer.
Legally, am I allowed for them to either honor that agreement (they probably won't) or hopefully to have them terminate my employment in a manner that I am eligible for unemployment benefits in CA? They basically are not giving me privileges that they agreed to in writing upon my hire.... as in, my negotiation with them before I agreed to accept their offer of employment.
Is my answer going through
At-will in that there was no length of employment guarentee. It was an email response of "Yes, all sounds good" from my employer when I recapped our terms of employment. Only then wopuld I accept the job. Now I cannot do one of the things in that email agreement.
So, is there any negotiating in general I can do with them to kindly fill out the paperwork in a way that will qualify me for unemployment benefits? Like, if I were to quit on my own. Do companies allow that ever? Would it be worth trying, and if so what verbiage would I use?
What is EDD? In my situation (in CA) I would most likely NOT qualify for unemplyoyment if I quit, correct?
