My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: California
So here it goes... I had a job for 5 year. Got let go from that job, applied and received unemployment. Then 7 months later I got a job. Held that job for 5 months and was let go for performance. Unemployment is going after my employer of 5 years for a second claim because of the lookback period. They are not asking my most recent employer because of california UI practices they look back essentially 18 months to six months ago, and break it up by quarter. They are calling to interview me next week because they are challenging my eligibility. I called and the customer service guy said they are probably going to ask some questions about why I can't hold the job.
I was hoping that someone can help me with what questions they are going to ask and how to answer those question, not going to make it too far without my UI benefits.
He also said there was a difference between "I was fired" and "I was laid off"... what is the difference?
Thank you all for your help, please reply with any questions....
