Im new to this so here goes.
I was laid off in the end of May 2010 from my original waitress job, I also started training for another job in may and during training i realized i was unable to comply with the requirements of duties they wanted. So i quit during training. I thought pay was based on finished training,(Ive worked many restaurant jobs like this before,where pay was based on full training) So i didnt think i would get a paycheck.
I filled for unemployment got it and less then a month later was reviewed and was later told i didnt file pay earned. I was really confussed, and found out i DID have a paycheck. After trying to talk with Unemployment and figure out all this i was cut off from everything . I didnt even pick up the paycheck till after JULY 2010 Which the employer can confirm.
Now im a F/T student since july/ a single mother and im unemployed, training for a new career through worksouce. my appeal is on the 19th of August please help. I heard of an "AT Will Doctrine" but am not really sure if Florida complies with this. Is there anything, out there to help me with my rights and what can I do to protect myself here.
