sure I've been fighting for the reinstatement of my unemployment benefits
and I am currently waiting for a judge to be assigned to my case. Losing my benefits has put me over the edge and has caused me an incredible amount of consternation, to the point where I'm borderline bankrupt. Do I have a case to sue the state of Washington?I was working as a substitute teacher for Seattle Schools up through June 24, 2016; I also had time with the company MckenzieChase during my last 5 quarters. On June 9, 2016 I had signed a "Letter of Reasonable Assurance" with the school district for the next fall. However I was soon asked to leave my housing situation by the end of June, 2016 and I had no job to secure an apartment lease with. I began living out of my car July, 2016, sleeping in rest areas, campgrounds, parking lots and etc.I've read the following on the internet:
If you work for another company within 5 quarters and the school district is considering hiring you over the break then you are eligible for unemployment
.If you are working on an apprenticeship which starts when your work with the district ends you are eligible for unemployment. (I have spent the last 6 or so months working on a data processing apprenticeship which is recognized by state of Washington)If you quit work because of no fault of your own you are entitled to unemployment. My reason for quitting is not listed on the standard list of reasons for justifiably quitting but not being able to attain housing is of no fault of my own.
JA: Because employment law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: can i sue the state?
JA: Is the employment agreement "at will
," union, full time or part time?
Customer: substitute teaching was about 30+ hours a week
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
