I have an employee that texted me at 1 AM on Friday stating

I have an employee that texted me at 1 AM on Friday stating she had an emergecy and would go out of town first thing in the morning and that she should be back on sunday but wasn't sure. I've tried contacting her several times but she never replied. She didn't show up to work today. However, our records show that she tried to access our office email account on Saturday and this morning. She also tried to access our computer system. I've since blocked her access and changed the locks. I've also mailed out her paycheck and a letter indicating that she's abandoned her job hence i've considered her quit. Right after I mailed her check, I received a text message from her stating that she had food poisoning but would come to work tomorrow. If I terminate her, is she entitled to unemployment? Can I tell her I will consider hiring her again after I interview other candidates since the staffing agency is sending some people over for working interviews? I was granted a judgment against her boyfriend before this happened.

I was terminated from my non-profit job on 10/7/16. I have

Hi. I was terminated from my non-profit job on 10/7/16. I have filed for unemployment in Oakland California and have my interview with Employment Development Depatment on 11/1/16 (next Tuesday) and would like to get assistance in how to answer the questions they have for me to best understand what is most likely to have me be accepted or rejected. For example, there will be one question: "Were you warned that your actions could result in being fired?" Are "warnings of being fired" something that would make it more likely or less likely that I'll receive Unemployment. And I have a couple other questions like that.JA: Can you tell me where the nonprofit is registered?Customer: In Oakland, CaliforniaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I filed for unemployment and have my interview on 11/1/16JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I think that is suficient

I am a director at a hospital. I had an extramarital affair

I am a director at a hospital. I had an extramarital affair that did not involve work or anyone from work.. I found out into it he was a brother-in-law to an employee at the hospital. this affair recently came out, the man told his wife after my husband knew and about two weeks after we broke it off. the wife asked me details, I did not tell her details of the affair but admitted that feelings were involved and apologized. she messaged me and among other name calling, etc said she wanted me dead and also said she would enjoy watching my life and reputation ruined. I was called in by HR and my CNO/COO and they talked of the affair and questioned me about a party I had attended several weeks before the break up at the sister-in-laws home. They told lies of me being intoxicated and talking badly about the hospital I work for. My HR director and CNO/COO also accused me of stalking the wife by being at a community ballfield complex where my daughter played softball daily and her son happens to play an occasional game. I am there several days a week and have been there for 9 years with my children. Now the mother of the wife has posted nasty comments on my children's pictures on social media. I have been put on administrative leave without anything in writing, any knowledge of when I may know something further and am in limbo. I am in the state of Maryland and understand that it is a no-cause firing state but wonder if I should seek legal guidance of how to proceed.

If I do try to go back to work part time with out my stool

If I do try to go back to work part time with out my stool say to try 4 hours. And say I use up the rest of my FMLA and disability hours available for reimbursement and my full time status would be dropped say in 5-6 months. If I decided that it would make sense to be done with that place since all my protective benefits were used would I still be able to get unemployment while waiting for my disability to come thru. I have never used any of these benefits and am not sure how unemployment works. I am leary about going back to work with out my stool but it seems to be the smartest thing to give a try in maybe a different part of the store. Also my HR set up the leave dates and said I just need a note from my doctor to extend them. If I dint go back to work since I don't have my stool I should be able to get my full payout correct. My HR only has an answering machine and I think theyd rather just get rid of me or try to see if Id fight to hang on. Mostly I wish to not have to go back to that dreadful place. My arms and hands and legs flare up people are not so nice and there is not a lot of help. How does unemployment work if you try to go back to work and then get out eventualy versus being let go.

I have a lobor and tax question. I'm a makeup artist working

I have a lobor and tax question. I'm a makeup artist working in New York City. I had a client who I've filed a w9 form with and they're telling me that I owe them 10% for unemployment taxes and fees. I was told that because they initially thought I was a Business/ Corporation they could pay my full rate. Now that they realize that I'm filing as an individual/sole proprietor I owe them unemployment taxes and fees. I've been a makeup artist for 10+ years I've never had this happen. Is this some new tax law? I've never heared of unemployment taxes and fees being deducted by an employer after the employee has filed a w9.
