This evening I received a voicemail from a person named

This evening I received a voicemail from a person named Jadelyn letting me know that my 'services' are no longer needed and she will be mailing out my pay check to my home address.Apparently, while on personal leave for 7 days (authorized leave) my previous employer Regency got taken over by Legacy. All employees were given 90 day notice. I was scheduled to return to work on Tuesday June 7, 2016.In the voicemail she mentions 'services', but as an employee who has a good attendance record, implemented the first comprehensive safety program process for the entire facility, and continues to strive for customer excellence is no longer needed. Never got any counseling always a team player and continue to have a positive attitude at work because of my fellow coworkers, residences, and administration.My question is my new employer never mentioned that my job was terminated due to poor performance or lack of just 'services' are no longer needed, and no 90 day notice was given while all other existing employees are still employed. I feel that I am being singled out and a target. Can the employer fill my position with no proper notice or why termination was justified?

I receive California unemployment insurance and my goal (and

I receive California unemployment insurance and my goal (and a requirement to receive unemployment insurance) is to look for a job. I want to do whatever is legally required and remain within the confines of the law. In order to set myself apart I prefer what is probably an unusual approach in 2016 and that is to write a letter to the HR department at various companies to ask them if they have job openings in my line of work. My question is: unlike email I have no way of proving that I wrote to these companies, and registered mail is expensive. If the burden of proof to prove I inquired about job openings rests with me (in the event of an audit) then I do in fact need to register the mail. Please advise. Thank you very much.

If the attorney gets a judgement and I can't pay it can he present that to the AZ ROC and persuade them to revoke my license to do work?

Went to work Co. Company does Mobile Dental Tomography.

Went to work for a Co. Company does Mobile Dental Tomography. I was given a manager Dr. This Mgr gave me the job,the Job description, hrs, pay constant contact.The first week was training in NYC, I live in Westchester. Truck given to me, but the software broke, the xray machine broke, missing parts, machine rattled in truck like a garbage can. I asked my Mgr. to fix, I was told fix it so we can be safe, safety is first.Second week, I had to park the truck in Long Island (Commercial Plate Laws in Bronxville, NY). Was now paying $15/Gas & $10 Toll a day. Constant contact with Mgng Dr. on fixing and developing a marketing strategy/list.Third Week. Still no pay, I was told initially $500/wk w/14% per patient. I was told I was only getting paid for 1 week. I quit, by phone call & eMail to Mgr and Owner. Owner called me and stated "I thought we were working together, you know you'll get paid"4th Week, Monday am I was called by a secretary at 9:30am - I had been on the road since 7:30AM and rushed to do everything, I informed here that I was not paid and that I had quit Friday - she did not know that....she was perplexed...I was talking to a Doctors office so I hung up.It was clear that the owner was not going to pay me, his secretary knew nothing about it.After I left the co., I was going to overnight he key....they rushed my Mgng Dr. to drive 1hr to me to get the key in a rain storm, I met him and gave him the keys. I immediately mailed the window shade for the truck that they wanted to stop the sunlight when doing a procedure.4/5 week: I was given a mandate by the owner: "We want a daily itemized report of everything you did, cards you received, Doctors you spoke to if you want to get paid, days later, this is the format you are to give me the report or you will not get paid."All of this information on their policy was given to me just that past Thursday/Friday.>>>I spent time, money, effort commuting, fixing, following every rule to the hilt, then the owner stepped in - told me that all this was told to me me from day one and he was not going to pay me.

I was off by my employer due to a company restructure

I was laid off by my employer due to a company restructure in September. I started getting unemployment benefit payments of $450 right after that.Around the same time (as my layoff), an ongoing workers compensation case (with the same employer) ended and the doctor released me with a permanent partial disability (PPD) rating which made me entitled to permanent partial disability benefits.At the time I filed my unemployment benefit application I did indicate to the representative from EDD that there was some disability payment I may get but at that time the amount was not finalized (but I shared with him contact info of the insurance company, so I figured he may have indicated this on my application). Recently I switched from filing my weekly unemployment benefit claim from the paper method to the online method - in the online method, they had a section where they had asked if I was getting any money from workers comp and I indicated yes with the amount.My permanent partial disability comes as a biweekly check of $580.I have been receiving my unemployment biweekly as well, of $450 per week.Now that I indicated the workers comp on the online claim method, can they reduce my unemployment weekly benefit, and if so, by how much?Please note: the PPD does not prevent me from seeking work/being able to work, it's a minor injury that is now healed.
