Employer and Temp agency reported that I quit or was a no call no show when they fired me and escorted me out of the building
I started unemployment at the beginning of the year and was actively looking for work so I started working about 4 months into receiving my unemployment. I was hired directly by the company and was being paid by a Temp Agency (never did the agency interview me, hire me or fire me). I was there 2-3 weeks when they fired me for a simple non-work related disagreement with the boss that hired me (no physical or offensive language used at all).
I went back to apply for unemployment benefits which they approved but 2 weeks later they informed me via mail that the employer I worked for (the Temp Agency) is stating that I was a no call/no show and that they never fired me.
I never even dealt with anyone at the Temp Agency but apparently they were paying me (which I was unaware of).
I had a hearing and explained all of this to IDES and they did not believe me. I got a letter in the mail yesterday stating that I owe IDES every dime I received over the last 6 weeks since re-applying (over $4000.00).
How can I prove that I was fired? I loved that job and would have never quit. It was close to home and the pay was decent.
Why Were You Denied Unemployment by the IDES Tribunal?
First, I'm moving your question to the other ones about working for a temporary staffing agency
, since that is where I attempt
to explain a state may have a special voluntary quit provision just for employees of a temp staffing agency, that temp employees need to be aware for an employer to access the provision of a voluntary quit.
Once you know one way, or the other, if Illinois has one of these special temp worker provision, you can choose to let me know if that's what you meant by this current finding you no called / no showed.
And how it is you want me to take on faith you didn't know it was a temp staffing agency paying you those two, or three weeks.
You had me .. right up until you told me the disagreement wasn't work related, but that didn't exactly jibe with the title for your question and then you tell me, "I never even dealt with anyone at the Temp Agency but apparently they were paying me (which I was unaware of)."
And if you're interested in getting to the bottom of whether the lower level tribunal decision is correct, or erroneous, along with the 4,000 dollar overpayment (which sounds a bit excessive to me considering how long you worked as as temp) to explain what you plan of proving now, that your appeal would have to go to a board of review
and that makes winning a more difficult matter because good cause for that sort of appeal, is different in that it is based only on the record created during your unemployment phone hearing.
