I was off from the public school system after 2.5 years of

I was laid off from the public school system after 2.5 years of work. I then started a job which I kept for 6 weeks and was then let go during my probationary period for basically not being a good fit. I had no disciplinary actions against me. My unemployment is adjudication. What is the likelihood I will be able to receive benefits?

Going to keep this as brief as possible I started a new job

Going to keep this as brief as possible I started a new job Monday and completed several documents including an I-9 employment verification providing the employer with my passport, SSN etc. On Tuesday some office dynamics that are two long to go into in this format occurred, and I decided this position was not going to work out long term. I had not resigned from my previous employer as I wanted to see if this position was even doable as it would involve a 2 1/2 commute of 134 miles one way daily. I sent a letter saying that I am not accepting the position and thanked them. On Thursday (today) I received a call from my current employer asking if I filled out an I-9 with this other company. Their is another unrelated party not mentioned but what I believe happened is my information was shared by an individual at the company I decided not to accept the job with, and they shared it with another party who then contacted my current company. By the way I work for a government contractor and had received official notice about 2 weeks ago but I had been verbally informed in April that our program was being discontinued by the government and my position would be eliminated Aug 14, 2014 thus why I was seeking other employment. My current employer now called me wanting to know if I filled out an I-9 with this other company, even though I will no longer have a job with them come Aug 14 they kind of threatened me till I asked how they had access to this information as I did not authorize any personal data or information to be shared. Leaving the soap opera aspects out of this was my privacy violated and do I have any course of action. At least 2 unauthorized parties obtained information that I filled out an I-9 with the new company and as their were only 1 other person besides myself in the office I filled out the I-9 with and provided my passport, ssn, etc I know that this individual shared this information with these other parties. I do not know if they provided copies, to other individuals with my personal data, or what other personal information they have shared. The company I filled out the form with is a very large multi national contractor.

I was recently given contingent job offer with a major US Defense

I was recently given contingent job offer with a major US Defense Contractor company in which I accepted. It had some contingencies that must be met prior to employment. They where medical, security, background, conflict of interest, drug... ect ect. I had passed all contingencies and was waiting for the next step in employment. The process had seemed to come to a complete stop.I had the opportunity to talk to a figure head of the company and I asked him what was going on with the process. He informed me that my current employer, which happens to be a foreign customer of this company, found out that I was extended a job offer. They were not happy and were accusing that I was "stolen" from them. They then threatened the defense contractor with suspending a 16 Billion dollar foreign sales contract because of it. The Defense Contractor is now deciding whether to rescind my job offer because of it. Is this legal? Do I have a foot to stand on? Can they rescind a job offer due to prior employer complaints? I met all pre-hire contingencies they set in place.

I live in Washington State and work 35+ hours a week at a restaurant.

I live in Washington State and work 35+ hours a week at a restaurant. Recently, my employer has made a change to the policy reflecting employment eligibility. When I was hired, one year ago, the amount of availability employees must give in a week was seven shifts (lunch shifts and dinner shifts are counted as two separate shifts) with one lunch shift availability and one weekend shift availability. Now, my employer is requiring employees have availability for nine shifts, including two lunch shifts and a weekend shift. As I am a student, it is impossible for me to meet these requirements and could be terminated for 'failing to meet the needs of stated policy'. I have been an excellent employee, as indicated by both supervisors and coworkers, and have never been written up. There was no advance notice given for the change in policy. What rights do I have as an employee if I'm fired or am forced to quit (i.e. constructively discharged)? Am I eligible to collect unemployment to cover my living costs in the interim I am between jobs?

I was a part-time employee of my churchs staff for several

I was a part-time employee of my church's staff for several months, receiving a regular monthly stipend. When my check was not direct-deposited at the end of July, I contacted the business office to find out why this had happened. I was informed that the church's finance committee had decided that my monthly stipend would no longer be paid, effectively terminating my employment. I was given no advance notice of this change in my employment status. Does this constitute wrongful termination?

I worked for a software company for 17 years. In June 1012

I worked for a software company for 17 years. In June 1012 the owner sold out to retire. The company no longer existed. They called it a shell corporation? The new company re-hired us-we had to fill out applications and everything. It is not working out. They have hired many old friends and I plan to leave. Am I eligible to collect unemployment from the company that closed? The owner would not deny it. Thank-you for your help.Michelle Street

I retired early from work almost two years ago, at the age

I retired early from work almost two years ago, at the age of 64, and applied for social security. I also applied for unemployment benefits which were approved. I stayed out of work for prox 6 months, and returned on a two day per week schedule. According to what I read unemployment benefits are not affected by soc security benefits. I continued to collect for almost 2 years, and recently recieved a notice that the NJUC made a monetary redetermination?? and found that I have been overpaid in njuc funds and now claim I have been overpaid 31,800, less a credit of 16,107, leaving a net balance due them 15,693.every claim I made was in accordance with their instructions, and they approved each and every one. I have written to them each time they say I owe this money, but they keep sending the same letter back that I owe them. My employer states he has not disputed any claim I have made and dosent understand why this is happening. I have worked for this company for 43 years, I have no pension, only the soc sec and unemployment.
