stupid unemployment!

so he got fired/laid off beginning of july. and it was over a bad decision, but people still got paid regardless. the bad decision was that payroll runs from monday to sunday. and well memorial day was on a monday. and pay roll was on a tuesday, so he made the decision to do the prior week payroll from monday to sunday, and put wait til the following week to do memorial day (monday) to sunday. Well apparently he was supposed to do memorial day's pay day with the prior week, which makes no sense.


Well, he had to do an interview with unemployment and then they had to talk with the company, we just got the letter yesterday that he was denied.


he's going to appeal. he wasn't trained in payroll or anything like that, it was literally one of those learn as he went jobs. it was like they set him up to fail! aghh! i want to cry so bad, how the hell are we gonna pay our bills on one income?! I don't make enough to pay our bills! we needed that unemployment to cover the rest!

I'm soo sorry, I understand how frustrating this is as my FI also was set up and fired from his job in May and has yet found work, and to top it off as of the end of june I got laid off (I work in the school board, but I dont' get paid for the summer)  We are still waiting on a decision, because his work said he was late, when he wasn't late for work, and also they tried to write him up becasue he took his sick days (which he's aloud 7 a year) it's a big mess and hopefully they figure things out soon.


I hope things work out for you soon, good luck and HUGS

thanks pusycat1980... sometimes it's comforting to know others in the same boat as me, but at the same time it isn't because it sucks for everyone involved!!!


I hope things work out for you guys as well! I just am in awe of how some companies are nickel and diming their employees. like come on, we're all trying to survive here!
