Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Thanks for your questions and good morning.I am so sorry that you have been mistreated this way.You can quit here but it means you have to show good cause here to the UI folks to have done so.Good cause may be if they did not pay you the promised wage or "demoted" your job, that could be the "good cause" legally needed for unemployment eligibility and to receive benefits.So you may well be able to qualify.It is important to gather what evidence you have in case it is contested by the employer.In a class action suit, if you join as a party to it, you are likely to have to release the company to collect any share of the class award. If you have your own separate claim overlapping the claims of the class then you may need to "opt out" of the class action suit in order to retain your right to pursue your own individual claim. Opting out may involve sending a signed opt out form to the class action lawyer.And you decide here which option is best for you in this situation.You may want to consider a local lawyer here if you are going to pursue this individually and to protect your individual rights in all of this.You can locate a local employment lawyer here through ABA approved lawyer referral.http://apps.americanbar.org/legalservices/lris/directory/main.cfm?id=WAI appreciate the chance to assist you today.Please let me know if you have more follow up.Thanks again.

Good morning to you as well and thank you for immediate response I have been trying to get answers for days. As far as the class action lawsuit I have not joined it just have the consent to join, so that's resolved so there is actually a lot more to this then what I briefly explained to you, as far as unemployment really three things happened lowered my wage from what was agreeded upon coming back and position was not same position as agreed upon, and they changed my schedule without my consent, how should I handle quiting? And any suggestions on who might best be able to handle this case? Thanks again for your quick response and your knowledge in this matter.
