About Me: It Was My Own Unemployment  Benefits Experience, That Made Me Do This!

My name is Chris and to quote a song from my youth, more relevant with each passing year of my life..


However, the first time I thought roaring might help me feel better, it was thanks to my job experience which combined with my own unemployment claim experience.  

Yet, I knew enough to know why if I chose to roar, I should do so somewhat anonymously from my own rooftop in an effort to retain control over what I wanted to roar about .. one person's ability, or inability to collect and keep their unemployment benefits until those benefits were no longer needed .. even if that meant they had no choice, but to exhaust the balance and duration they continued to be entitled to collect.

On a sidenote, I'm quite happy with my current employer.   She let's me work when I want and always at a pace I'm comfortable with.  

I made the choice to become self employed with full knowledge and understanding I would no longer be covered by unemployment insurance.

This is what happened to motivate me to learn how to build a website .. I called Unemployment-Tips.com

Stories About Working Smarter

I am trying to control the redundant free basic unemployment questions and advice I give, since my belief is one still benefits by improving their odds of winning through professional unemployment representation, or coaching.

Unemployment Tips after all, is a .com, not a .org. And there are just to many question about UI when someone is still an at-will employee, or employer, that could be better served from an active, or preemptive perspective of problem resolution that would help avoid ending at-will jobs .. that also end up being found without any good cause rising to the standard of law unemployment insurance laws expect .. after the fact, or an employee rights law that was being violated.

When an employee works smarter, they often perform better, but they also know how to protect themselves better from those other employees who might just be acting as an agent on the authority given by the entity employer.

Workplace story? Do you love it .. or deal with it .. or ignore what's going on?
