My question involves insurance law for the state of: California
I looked around but didn't see anything regarding my issue. My question is this, I am/was a State employee of the state of California and my department issued me adverse action resulting in termination for alleged misconduct. I filed an unemployment claim and it was granted as my department could not show misconduct (they actually made a false assumption oops!). I am scheduled for hearing before the state personnel board which will almost certainly result in reinstatement with back pay and likely interest and was wondering if California is one of the states with subrogation statutes relating to paying back unemployment compensation upon back pay of salary? I can't seem to find the answer anywhere, and my case may be different as a state employee possibly? like some type of windfall or "gift of state funds" law or something since the state is the one that pays the unemployment AND has to back pay salary it would result in double dipping or something? thank you for your time.
