Re Unemployment benefit. I received a "lump sum" severance

Re Unemployment benefit. I received a "lump sum" severance check from prior employer (team layed off due to closing dept). Georgia Labor is dividing my weekly income into this amount and delaying my UI. How can they interpret the statute to do this and help corporations over it's citizens. I signed an agreement to not sue the company so I could receive this severance, and now I am having to wait 3 months to get unemployment even though my severance was a 1-time payment (not spread out over a period of time. Any direction on how I can research this ? Thanks Shari LarsonJA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: GeorgiaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: They approved it, but then sent 2nd notice disqualifying it for 13 weeks and told me to reapply then based onJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Section II- Legal basis for determination: Section 34-8-194(5)(A) of the Employment Security Law says that you cannot be paid unemployment when you are receiving or have received any pay related to your separation. Separation payments which are less than your weekly wage will be applied based on your most recent weekly wage for a standard work week. You cannot draw benefits if the payments are more than the weekly benefit amount of your claim.

After working for a company for over four years, I resigned

After working for a company for over four years, I resigned for personal and health in Jan 2016. Before resigning, I contacted the company's HR department and asked how the Profit Sharing Retirement Plan vested balance would be transferred or paid out. HR told me it takes a full tax year for the Profit Sharing Management Company to conclude that I was no longer an employee. At that point, the Profit Sharing Management Company would contact me and arrange a transfer or paid out. I trusted the HR staff information. I waited until Feb 2017. I contacted HR again telephone and left a message regarding this issue. HR did not return my call. I followed up a week later with an email (letter) to HR. They still did not return my request for action nor contact me. One week later I called HR again, a HR person answered the phone and verbally promised that would have the HR Profit Sharing Plan company expert contact me as soon as possible. I waited three week. No one has called me. The money is the plan is relatively small but I feel it belongs to me. My last statement of benefits from 12/31/2015 shows an ending balance of $3,597.66 with an vested balance of $2,878.13. What can be done?

I'm going back to work next week after being on maternity

I'm going back to work next week after being on maternity leave, but my company restructured while I was out and now I'm coming back to a new job and a new boss. Unfortunately, they told me that the new position they put me in requires 40% travel nationwide, which I definitely can't do and they know I can't do... before I only had to do less than 10%. I believe they put me in a position that forces me to quit.
