I was fired from my job and rewarded unemployment. My employer appealed the claim and we went for another hearing. My attorney and the adjudicator had some VERY harsh words to each other and needless to say I lost the appeal. I have appealed this and am now getting a new hearing (remanded).
I am not using my attorney now, since I feel that she lost this for me.(When she yelled at the adjudicator!)
So...I am on my own. They are saying that I quit, which I did NOT. The owner and the other employees that he brought as witnesses lied during the hearing. ( They are afraid of losing their jobs...which they should be because he will fire them!)
At the time that he fired me He said "We need to part Ways" three times, I asked "Are you letting me go?" He said "yes". I left.
HE IS SAYING NOW THAT I QUIT!
I have no witness because they all still work there and fear for their job.
When I was fired NO One was in the room. (Only me and the owner)
If this does not go in my favor will I have to back pay the money that they had awarded?
I have been reading this forum and have not read where someone has had to pay them back.
