Have employee threatening we...

Have employee threatening we promised full time and now only offering part time. In addition left voluntarily for 3 months and filed for unemployment in CA telling them we laid her off. Reported to Ca. Would like her to quit. We are in Florida.

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

At will, not sure whether she was offered full or part time but nothing in writing.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Only want her part time are we exposed anywhere

ok

Thanks so much for your patience. So, could you describe to me the circumstances of offering her full time? Was this a promise that you made? Did you tell her that this was something that you were only considering?

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.
