Thanks so much. In your professional opinion, based on my

Thanks so much. In your professional opinion, based on my circumstances, would the Title 22, Section 1256-1(e)(4) the attorney referenced apply. In other words, if Takeda did report to EDD mutual separation as a part of a settlement, would I "not" be disqualified based on title 22? Takeda attorney says I wouldn't be disqualified. Is she correct ?

Mr.! I am not sure if you can view my previous question

Hello Mr. Phillips! I am not sure if you can view my previous question which will provide some background? I assume so?My company and I reached a settlement. In the MOU it specifically states "Strauss employment will end as of Sept 1...strauss agrees to not rehire. In the long form, which has same language and was drafted by my company's attorney, I requested they add the language "at no fault of her own" (referring to the ending of my employment). My company refuses to add that language. I want to ensure I will be granted unemployment.The attorney verbally told me, when I questioned her what my company would report, she stated, "a mutual separation". I told her it wasn't mutual and I never agreed to have it mutual. I only am agreeing to "not rehire".They are willing to put the following language in the agreement. However, this provides zero guarantee they will not provide EDD with language that will not disqualify me: email from the attorney today:This morning, you indicated by email to me that "When I specifically asked you what Takeda would report to EDD, you stated, the separation was mutual. As an employment attorney, you very well know that would disqualify me." This is simply wrong. Title 22, Section 1256-1(e)(4) provides as follows:"There may be a separation by mutual agreement if the employer and employee have mutually agreed to separate, either at the time of termination or, initially, at the time of hire. In such cases the termination is neither a discharge nor a leaving and thus a disqualification cannot arise under Section 1256 of the Code. The expiration of a fixed term contract of hire to which the parties initially agreed is an example of a termination by mutual agreement."We have added language into the agreement in hopes of clarifying this issue for you so that Takeda's intention is clear. That language is as follows:Subject to your execution, non-revocation, and continued compliance with the terms of this Agreement, the Company agrees not to affirmatively contest any effort by you to seek unemployment insurance coverage based on your separation from employment with the Company (except nothing herein shall prevent the Company from providing accurate and truthful answers regarding your employment relationship or separation, to the extent obligated to respond to inquiries from any government agency related thereto, regardless of any impact on your ability to obtain unemployment insurance benefits).I have requested they provide in the agreement one of three options: check option 3. laid off/lack of work on form DE 1101C/Z or put involuntary separation in the the "other option" or add the language "as of no fault of her own".Can you please provide your opinion? What should I ask of them to insure they will not report information EDD that will disqualify me? I greatly appreciate your professional insight.

My ex was supposed to pick up our daughter at 3 today. He

My ex was supposed to pick up our daughter at 3 today. He texted that he could not get her until after 4. I told him I had to work and would be home at 5:15. I took her to work with me. He is mad. I am supposed to have our daughter at 9:00 tomorrow for her birthday. Now he says if I come at 9:00, he won't be home because of what I pulled today. He was going to be late, and I had a tour to give. I told him I didn't pull anything and was coming to get her at 9:00. He said he was expecting the traffic to be bad. I asked him where he was staying with her if he wasn't at home. He called me names and said he would take the situation in hand. If I go to pick her up at 9:00 and they are not at the house, do I call the police?

Can I sue State Compensation Insurance Fund? I'm being

Can I sue State Compensation Insurance Fund?I'm being charged $5500 for back pay on my workers comp. for 2014-2015, the reason for the charge is this; they are including the total commission we pay to get business as a payroll expenses and calculating our premium on those bases, this is a limousine service and we have to pay commission to the hotel's bellmen or front desk agents to get limousine jobs, when CA SCIF audited me in 2015 they looked at my bank statements and the checks I paid to these agents in my bank account and included the commission as a payroll even though on the checks say "commission" and not payroll, I separate my payroll from other expenses, when I refused to pay (justifiably) they sent my case to a collection agency and now I have to pay $6661.35, if I pay that money is like I'll be giving everyone a free ride and pay for the gas and expenses out of my pocket! Can I take them to court (or small claim court) or is any lawyer who will take the case and also is the CA State Compensation Insurance Fund considered a public entity? And how do I file a written claim (a templet) with CA SCIF?PS: I do not have a policy with them any longer since all my employees are corporate officers.Thanks,Kami SoltaniLuxe Transportation Inc.Los Angeles, CA
