A Warning

Post by Jenny2 on Sat Mar 12, 2011 11:39 am

My stepson worked for a carpet cleaning franchise for 4 yrs. Business has been way down due to the recession (he is only 22 yrs. old). The managers have been writing up workers in order to terminate them. Recently, they asked for volunteer layoffs & he applied on the condition of recieving paperwork that he was laid off in order to collect unemployment. They agreed but the paperwork later recieved says he "quit" & they refuse to change it & he must leave. Of course I will still help him apply for UI & fight/appeal it.

It just pisses me off that they tricked him. Many years ago, I voluntarily took a layoff from a big bank & had no problem getting UI.

But those were the good ole days when employers were fair.

No replies please about volunteering.......the job was ruining his back among other health ailments & he has other career opportunities in the works. This post is a warning to others about being very careful about volunteer layoffs.

O wow I am glad you are fighting it. I had to fight mine and I won. After I won I took him to court for human rights and won that too. You should look into it. Its free to file and will bug the chit out of them. Very Happy

http://www.dhr.state.ny.us/how_to_file_a_complaint.html I used this website. I am sure your state has it too. I won 1,300 bucks and cost them a days work. He had to hire a lawyer and pay his employee to testify. I beat them ALL!

Jenny2, so sorry for you and your son. I would definitely fight this. They have to prove that he quit. That I know for a fact. Generally his former employer would be asked for a signed seperation agreement or his exit interview paperwork. If others in the company had the same problem or were approached, he should contact them and see if together, they could file a complaint.

Best of luck, we will all say prayers. Please let him know he has support.

This is why you never agree to anything until you have that in black and white and signed by the owner, manager and supervisor. I would have just said no and forced them to lay me off.

This was just an attempt to get out of paying unemployment benefits by forcing your stepson to quit voluntarily.

But the thing is the company doesn't have to actually pay the benefits. They just pay the insurance premiums. It is despicable that a company would try and stop you from getting a basic amount of benefits to keep from starving to death.

I'd call an employment attorney. I've done this in the past, and they've been willing to do the initial consultation for free.

I've heard of a number of companies doing this sort of thing. Their UI insurance premiums go up - sometimes double. Not a big deal to Mega-Banks, but small companies pinch their pennies.

That fact he worked there for four years and probably did everything right only to be treated like his at the end.

Well I believe karma will take affect.

Additionally, this is also why you should always call your state's unemployment agency and ask questions on collecting unemployment during an agreement such as this.
