I am quite sorry that you do not like the answer I provided you. I do realize that the law does not provide the remedy you were hoping for, and over that I have no control.
I am, among other things, an employment law attorney---I have been for nearly 30 years, 2/3 of that with a successful, full time practice in CA---- and my answer was not simply to the best of my ability---it was an accurate reflection of the law, and with all respect intended, I take umbrage with your inference that it was something less. I fully
understood your factual situation as you stated it, and I took those stated facts into consideration in providing you with the answer.
While I strive to give you an accurate and applicable answer to your question, and if I can possibly suggest an avenue by which you might have a successful legal outcome I will, please understand that I don’t have the ability to provide you with favorable law, or facts, if they do not exist. As you read my answer to your question, I ask you to please not shoot, or disparage, the messenger.
You stated:I have expensed in my statement that I have a new Mananger that has made decisions in the sales process that I don't agree with, unethical actions that effect my moral standards along with others. Under the law, I'm sorry, but this is a non-issue. It has no effect on your eligibility for unemployment. This is essentially "office politics" and does not impact on justification for quitting your job as far as unemployment benefits are concerned.
You also state: He has added duties that were never required of me before, such as Sell "After Sale Options" such as warranties, gap insurance and points on the rate, all these after selling is suppose to be sold by the Finance Manager. Again, this is a non-issue. Employers delegate additional duties all the time. That does not create justification for an employee to quit and thereby gain eligibility for unemployment benefits.
You also state: This process makes me responsible of lying to customers, telling them that their credit is not great and the banks are giving you a higher rate and recommend that you get extended warranties and gap insurance to satisfy the banks. No Sir, I must disagree. If you lie to your customers, this is your choice. Now, if you can show me a company policy that mandates that you lie to customers I will reevaluate this particular issue.
You wrote: A car salesman job is to only focus on selling the vehicle only. This new Manager is also forcing us to do telemarketing calls which was never in my job description when I was hired. Again, this is simply an additional duty for you. It does not provide legal justification to quit. There is a department that handles "Business Development" or (B.D.C.). With all these changes and increase of hours require of us to work , I make less money that I ever did. In my experience this change in job duties, coupled with additional time you put in---but countered by the fact that the economy is in terrible shape and there are other factors at play here, my evaluation of the situation is not changed.
Finally, you ask: Are you telling me that with all this, I do not have a solid reason to resign and be covered by unempoyment insurance? I apologize if I was not clear enough before, but yes, this is precisely what ! am saying. Your facts as presented do not justify you quitting---in terms of becoming eligible for unemployment benefits under the laws of the State of California.
Your final comment I take as a rhetorical question, buy I fee forced to respond for the sake of clarity.
I'm sure that you are fully aware that you are free to quit, and go to work for a new employer. You are, obviously, not compelled to work for this particular employer.
I wish you better luck with your next employment situation.
