My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Pennsylvania
I have been all over the internet looking for a case even slightly similar to mine and can't find anything. I'm hoping someone here can help.
I worked for a CPA firm for the past two years, after graduating from college. Long story short, earlier this year, I was directed to include large personal expenses in a business tax return, and to move income of another business into the next tax year so it could be "bonused out" before it became taxable. I discussed this with my supervisor many times, but he wouldn't budge. I decided to resign rather than submit materially false tax returns to the IRS.
When I filed for unemployment, I stated my reason for resigning, and to date, the employer has not contested my unemployment claim (though they still have a few days to do so). I am now considering filing a civil suit to recoup the difference between my salary and the amount I will be paid by unemployment until I can secure a similar position.
I can find no case history on any such a claim anywhere on the internet. I really feel this is a viable claim due to the circumstances of my resignation. Has anyone ever run across anything like this before, or might you have an idea where I might look? To the best of my knowledge, PA is the ONLY state in the union which doesn't have an on-line case history site.
