We run a summer camp in California and hire summer only
We run a summer camp in California and hire summer only employees as part of camp.One of our summer only employees has filed for unemployment insurance. I have several questions:1) If the person had finished their contract through the entire summer, would they be eligible for unemployment even though it was a limited part time/seasonal contract?2) If this person requested to leave due to taking care of a sick pet and left 3 days prior to the end of their contract, does that constitute resignation making him ineligible for unemployment?3) If we have a clause in their contract that states "I agree that this position with Camp Ramah in Northern California is seasonal in nature, and I will not be eligible for unemployment compensation." Is this legal/enforceable in the state of California?

What can I do legally to stop a former employer from
What can I do legally to stop a former employer from bullying, harrsasment and retaliation. In short, a former employer terminated me and denied my unemployment benefits for claims of misconduct. (I was a prison teacher). This is totally false, I was just not a good fit in the correctional environment. Last May, I won a hearing with the CA. Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board when the Administrative Law Judge ruled that I did not in fact have misconduct. My ex employer did not show up at that hearing. Then in August, they appealed the ALJ decision and a new hearing was set. Four days before this, they withdrew their appeal and the rehearing was cancelled. Now they have filed a report of "invesitgation of misconduct" and my professional fitness as a teacher is under investigation by the CA. Commission on Teacher Credentialing.JA: Can you tell me what state this is in? And how long has this been going on?Customer: Imperial Countyc CA. I want to know what I can do to get a cease and desist order for the harrassment from ex employer to stop. They have already lost their case as the ALJ (I have documentation) ruled that I did NOT have misconduct under unemployment. They failed to show up the first hearing and withdrew their appeal for the second hearing in August. All this has been going on since last May. I was terminated February 1, 2016. Now they are going after my teacher credential as they have filed a report with the CA. Commission on Teacher Credentialing.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: For them to go after my teaching credentialing (I have a new teaching job and am worried about losing it because of all this) is complete harrassment and retaliation on the part of my former employer. On my last day they tried to coerce me into resigning and said if I filed for unemployment they would appeal it and that "they (the state department of corrections) always win".JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I just want to know if I indeed have a employer harassment case and how I can get a cease desist order? Also, the Commission is asking for legal documentation from the prison (to try and prove misconduct which they failed to do). I want to know if I can legally subpeona letters from former coworkers there on my behalf (that I need to send to commmision on teacher credentialing by Nov 10) ok thanks.

Researching if I can file for unemployment although I quit
researching if I can file for unemployment although I quit my job I quit to do stress reasons which caused me to be seen at the local ER and was taken out of work for a week due to high blood pressure. also after talks with HR I was in the process of filing harassment charges for all the extra work put on me which I stated for 3 months I was falling behind Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: my dept. was under staffed and everyone was given more work to do. Management delayed hiring help for over 3 months. Also being in an office salary position I was being told to go wok on the floor on nights and weekends. I was also demoted on Aug. 8th for falling behind on my office work. That following Saturday Aug 13th is when my blood pressure was so high with major headaches I went to the ER. I seen my Dr on Aug 15th and he took me out for the remainder of the week. I returned to work on Aug 22nd and heard how bad I was missed and needed while i was out by my other dept workers. And at our 8am meeting I was informed by the GM I was bac to my normal job and not demoted. Also, when a dept worker put in his 2 week notice was told I would have to do his job since I was from that position and trained him. I was told I would have to do 2 positions until they hired 2 people, which I was to train both
I was let go from my job 2 weeks ago and offered a severance
I was let go from my job 2 weeks ago and offered a severance in exchange for signing a "voluntary separation and release agreement". I have done some research and I don't believe signing this agreement would prohibit me from also collecting unemployment while I search for a new place of employment. I also would like to ensure the wording in the agreement is standard. Thank you.

I had an appeal hearing for unemployment. The employer was not reacheable. The adjudicator gave the employer alloted time to respond and return the call. The employer or participating party is suppose to call 15 minutes if they do not receive a call for the hearing. After the hearing which was about an hour lateer the hearing officer called back and said that she was going to reschedule b/c she did not receive an email where the employer updated the contanct number? Is that acceptable considdering the fact that i also had to update my number and the hearing officer recieved my email
On Aug. 18th, I agreed to an LCA between my labor union and
On Aug. 18th, I agreed to an LCA between my labor union and the company I work for.We were prepared to arbitrate, but I took the advice of union counsel and agreed to the LCA even though I felt allegations made against me would do well at arbitration.On August 26th, my company informed me that I had violated the LCA from Facebook activity on my union's FB page that allegedly came from me. I don't believe I posted those comments, but just the same, I feel that any criticism toward my union or "union officers/ officials" did not violate my LCA.I agreed to release all claims against the company- including what I feel is a prime facia case of religious discrimination/ Retalition against the company.I am a flight attendant governed by the Railway Labor Act. The Labor Management Relatiinship Disclosure Actof 1959 explicitly states that union members have a right to disagree/ criticize union officials/ officers "without reprisal from the company or from union officials."I had my first disciplinary hearing. The company clearly did not believe me when I stated I did not post anything to the union's FB page. I did share I felt my soon to be ex- husband may have sabotaged my FB activity as he was quite angry that I released all EEOC claims ( he is Muslim. I work for an airline, I took extensive protective activity... I am certain you get where I am going with this).My company picks and chooses when it will assert itself in our union business. It's unfair. My union is weak however and seems reluctant to fight this.The union is taking my grievance. I am preparing to go through the process again.Incidentally, the state of Nevada charged the experience rating of the airline I work for after I applied and recieved unemployment insurance.I'll stick with my union representation for now, but an consisering hiring an employment attorney if necessary.Had I known that anything was posted that could anyway jeopardize my LCA on Aug. 24, I would have made darn certain that I revoked the agreement by 6pm on August 25th as I would have still been in the time frame where I could revoke the agreement.I maintain that I did not make any posts to my union's FB page. What I was shown had no date or time stamp. It also criticized "union officials" and their role in having me terminated as well as being the reason for my airline having its' experience rating charged.I'll continue with the grievance process as that is how I can hang on to my health insurance.Just wondering your legal opinion on the LCA.It's extensive, mentions I have filed for workman's comp as well making certain I would have any charges with the EEOC and other agencies in regards ***** ***** rights in the workplace.My estranged husband is an accountant. We may be going through divorce proceedings, but he is correct.It all seemed collusive and a set up on behalf of the company and my own union leaders.According to the EEOC and the Nevada DOL, it was in fact a few union officers/ officials that reported me for some very serious allegations.Contract proposals are in the table. A certain faction of our union blames me for leading a charge in voting down the last tentative agreement proposal presented to flight attendants.I live in Boise, ID. My company is headquartered in Dallas, TX. I was based and worked out of Las Vegas, NV.Any help is greatly appreciated.
