I work at a charter school and all teachers are at-will

I work at a charter school and all teachers are at-will employees. At the end of each school year no one is told if they are going to be invited back for the fall. They may discuss what new things will happen in the new year, but no one ever looks you in the eye and says you're coming back at this rate of pay or privately says to you that you're coming back. As a matter of fact a few teachers always receive letters just before the school year starts telling them they won't be back. Also, no one is ever told in writing that they're coming back for the new year. What is California's rule when it comes to reasonable assurance? It is defined as "Reasonable assurance is defined as an offer of employment or assignment made by an educational institution." But what does that mean? What is an offer of employment? Does this means the say or in writing that you will start on this day and be paid this salary?

2 weeks ago my employer handed me a Termination Notice which

hi,2 weeks ago my employer handed me a Termination Notice which has "Upon Mutual Agreement" checked, along with a list of false accusations against me entitled an "Employee Performance Improvement Plan". I was really left with no choice but to not return to my job of 5+ years. My (California) employer said they "will not contest Unemployment Benefit", but i assume this does not mean i will automatically get it.I have a phone interview scheduled with the EDD, and need to know how i should answer the question :"Was i warned that my actions could result in being fired?"(I don't consider the "performance improvement plan" any kind of warning as it was full of untruths and inaccuracies, so i could not possibly put my signature to it.)thanks!

I fired an employee after he failed to tell me about a

I fired an employee after he failed to tell me about a flood. He was already failing at his normal job, which he was about to be fired for anyways. After ignoring the flood, and later admitting he did see it, he was removed from his job that night. Told to find a new job, and was kept on to help clean up the mess. A few days after the mess was cleaned up, he told me he had an interview coming up, I told him he would no longer be needed to clean up and was sent home. He worked in my shop a total of 6 weeks, during the time he already had unemployment benefits. He was awarded benefits after I terminated him. How can I explain this to EDD / Judge, during a phone-in appeal?

I got off due to low oil prices. I am 62 years old and

I got laid off due to low oil prices. I am 62 years old and am now receiving a pension payment from the employer that laid me off. I did not contribute to this pension. I just received a letter from EDD stating that I cannot collect unemployment because of that pension. The pension is greater than the unemployment payment would be. They also sent me an Appeal Form. Do I have any chance of collecting unemployment?
