I was terminated unexpectedly on June 24th. I was terminated
I was terminated unexpectedly on June 24th. I was terminated as per my former employer due to not being able to multitask and not being able to follow new procedures which she now claims is misconduct. I was employed for the last 2 years as the front desk receptionist.I was given a severance pay of $7500.00 . I started receiving unemployment benefits in August 2016 and up to October 3rd. I was able to get a part time job on Sept. 22nd and have been reporting my gross income. I am still receiving unemployment benefits.I received today a NC Dept. of Commerce Division of Employment Security-Appeals packet stating I am being given a day and time which I will be contacted by an Appeal referee to speak with me to dispute the charges of misconduct spelled out in the packet by my former employer.It will be my word against my former employer. She has documented days in which she had to continuously remind me to correct mistakes which I did make, not intentionally, when I was learning new dental programs and learning how they wanted their practice to be for them and the patients for the last 2 years.I have some of my unemployment benefits left over since I have used some of the benefits to pay rent, utilities, etc.Should I go ahead and be present for the Appeal conference call on Nov. 1st or pay all of the unemployment benefits back with help from my family?

Registered nurse at a large hospital. Last week human
I am I registered nurse at a large hospital. Last week human resources brought me in to a room with my manager and stated that there was a narcotic medication thar was taken out under my name but never scanned and given to the patient. So there is a discrepancy and they are accusing me of taking the narcotic. I took a urine drug test and that was negative. However, I spoke with the human resources person today and she stated that in order to continue my employment, I have to undergo a rehab program that might take up to 3 months and cost me $3000 up front as a copayment for my insurance and that after completing the program they can reinstate my employment. I asked what if I don't, she stated that the deadline for me to apply to program is this Monday and if I do not then they will consider terminating my employment and reporting my license to the state. It sounds like they are holding a ransom over me and I am left with no options but to do their demands in order to work. I'm not sure what is the best thing to do. To just apply for the rehab or let them terminate me and risk my license? Any thoughts on that and what I should or should not do?Also I have a health condition and have told the human resources person that my health is not well now and have actually seen my doctor and he is willing to write me a note and also help me apply for short term disability. I mentioned the health issue and doctors note to the human resources. She said she doesn't see what kind of health problem would prevent me from attending treatment but I do have until the end of business day Monday to send my note. Any thoughts on if this would protect me or would this cause them to just terminate me? Can I be protected from them if I'm under doctors care?I the mean time I can submit my short term disability claim and I am already applied for medical leave. However, because I was hired 10/12/2015, my benefit eligibility would not begin until 10/12/2016 which is only a couple days away.Any suggestions on what to do or if the disability claim and doctors note would buy me some time and offer protection until I have this figured out? Or is it just best to do their recommendation of treatment rehab by this Monday? Thank you.
