Thank you. You have two options and you would need to call them over the phone and speak with them, for a status update. The first, is to call the State of California directly and see if they can provide you with a status update. Here is their number:

  • 1-***-***-****

Then, if needed, you can also call and follow up with the US Department of Labor as well, if these benefits are related to and handled by them, as well. 1-866-4-USA-DOL (1-***-***-****) .

Since it has been almost 2 months, you should have heard and received some type of correspondence, so these departments and see the status.

Please let me know if you have any follow up questions or need any clarification on something which I stated above. Also, remember to rate my service at the top of this page, before exiting the site, so I can receive credit for my help. I hope you found it to be Excellent! Only rate my answer when you are 100% satisfied. If you feel the need to click either of the two lower ratings to the left, please stop and reply to me. I want to make sure your experience with the site was as pleasurable as possible and that you are satisfied with the help I provided.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.

My problem is employment related. I am an over the road team
i am an over the road team truck driver. long story short... Company deducted equipment recovery fee before I even decided to terminate or resign from employment. There is nothing written in their policies or procedures about this. We are team drivers. They tried to pin and play each of us against each other claiming the other said this and the other said that. We picked the truck up in Hagerstown, MD. They want us to drive the truck to TN. They then changed that to they want us to drive the truck AND a load down to TN. Nothing is in writing and things are changing depending on who you speak to. We have already offered to take the truck, which is leased from Ryder, to a Ryder. Again nothing is in writing and since they already took the recovery fee from our paychecks, they terminated us and never provided any notice or anything. It took multiple calls and emails gone unanswered to finally get some one on the phone. I am very leery of doing anything as we have alot riding on this now. They could say the truck is stolen if I drive it, they can refuse to pay us for the loads they want us to do (but we are terminated so why would we run a load), they could refuse to reimburse the recovery fee, they could leave us stranded at any time. My driving record is at risk as well as my future driving career. With being terminated before I quit and then being asked to drive loads and the truck - what is my legal stand point as I want to protect myself. … read more
