Laid off before receiving termination letter? Can I collect in california?
I had a very minor accident in which i failed to set my parking brake and vehicle rolled twelve feet before bumping a fence with no damage to either, which i foolishly did not report but someone else saw it. After the investigation, i had received a notice of a scheduled date of removal, but was still in the appeal process when i received my lay off notice. Am I still eligible for benefits?
Let me get this straight. You failed to report an accident per employer policy. "Someone" told on you and an investigation ensued to determine whether you would be discharged. (Wondering if you were suspended during investigation).
Then while all this was going on you received a notice saying you would be laid off for a "lack of work". (I don't know the date the date the layoff was slated to happen).
Should I presume you the investigation was concluded prior to the the layoff date and the decision was to terminate your employment and the termination notice has a date of separation earlier than the layoff notice?
