Quit jobs due to illegal activies and poor working condition
(Park City, UT)
I quit my job due to illegal activities and poor working conditions. My boss zeroed out patient credits, did not refund for errors that were made. He had me adjust trade work as a loss for his business, paid late (pass due dates), shorted my bonus and threatened to cut my hours by more than 20%. Did I have good cause to quit? Unemployment has denied me after my first appeal? Please help!
Tell me about the illegal activities of the employer and how you "proved" this burden that illegalities were occurring and how you were involved in helping the employer carry them out.
By the way, an employer doesn't have to threaten a 20 percent reduction in hours .. because they are free to do this as a "business decision". They can even cut your wages by 20 percent as long as you don't drop below the minimum wage standards. The could even cut your hours or wages by 75 percent if they wanted .. of course you might then have good cause to quit .. but the amount of the cut can be state specific.
When it comes to reduction in hours .. I always suggest filing for partial unemployment benefits first .. because if they are a decent employer .. the goal would be to reinstate those hours when things pick up.
