  • california Claim with DLSE

    I have Went to my First board meeting (dlse) and was then setup for a final hearing. I am unavailable to make it to the time given by the board. Would i be able to get an attorney to go for me?

    The Employer never came to the first meeting, Nor is he coming to the final hearing.

    Per request moved to a more appropriate forum.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

      Not attending is not going to help your position. And just because the employer isn't attending either doesn't automatically mean you win; and they may just change their mind at the last minute.

      All neither of you attending would do is make the state decide based on the information they already have. And not knowing why your employment ended and who appealed (if it's even to that stage), we can't begin to guess what the outcome would be.

      Honestly, I would do whatever you need to do so you can attend. If you've started a new job, I'll be the new employer would work with you on missing a couple of hours.

      If you don't attend, it's basically like shooting yourself in the foot. The state needs to hear from YOU, not your attorney parroting what you've already told him. They will be asking questions and they will need YOU to answer them.

      You may or may not be able to get it rescheduled, but that just p*$$es them off.
      I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
