Customer Question

I quit my job because my employer demand me to do a job what I think is illegal. As an IT at alvarado hospital, they want me to full a data records, personal records of all the employees at the hospital including their pay, adresses,personal private records. On which i9s not on my job description of doing. I asked the payrol department and personal department that it's their jobs to do not mine because I thought that I will be violating a privacy act. But the departments that I ask washes their hands off of it. That they are unaware to the jobs I was told by my manager to do. During this time I found out that the hospital is under auditing by the Federal gov't. For what reason I don't know. The management pressured me to do it but I refused. Over the overloading work and extended time of work i'm doing even at home it affected me and my family so Idecided to quit. I am now fighting my rights for unemployment benefits but the EDD keeps denying my benefits for their reason that I quit my jobs for no valid reason. My recent appeal from EDD has been denied again. I kept looking for jobs but seems I can't find it. I got a wife and a family to support and now depleted financially. I don't know what to do anymore. please help.
