Quit my job but employer lied during telephone interview
Basically here is the chain of events that led to me quitting and what was told to the EDD telephone interviewer:
- I was harassed by a male employee who yelled in my face and physically blocked me from leaving the office
-reported it and nothing was done about it
- harassment continued by same employee, reported it and was blamed for 50% and had my promotion taken away
-went on medical leave for 12 weeks
-was denied my reasonable accommodation and my employer failed to engage in the interactive process (reported this to DFEH)
-returned to work to find my position i had held prior to going out of medical leave was given to someone else and i was forced to take a position in the company that i had no knowledge or training in.
-started getting verbal reprimands from HR on petty stuff that I've done before and it was never an issue
-2 weeks later, i was still being denied training and could no longer sit at work all day and do nothing
my employer told the EDD telephone interviewer i quit due to modified work.
That was not the case at all. I tried numerous times to fix the issues but things were getting worse for me and to top it off, my harasser was still employed and my new position had me sitting closer to him.
I have my appeal hearing soon, any advise on how to represent myself. do I have a strong case?
