I spoke with my coworker, the one who quit a few weeks after I did. Her unemployment claim was approved and she has already started receiving benefits. I always went up to bat for myself and my team with the VP of HR whenever he was not doing something he should be, or to get his attention to an issue that was arising, to hold him accountable..so he can do his damn job. Now I'm feeling like this is some sort of personal vendetta against me because besides myself, there were 4 others that were in my department, 2 so far got their unemployment, 1 still works there, and the other didn't get it because she told EDD that she quit for another job, and then did not show up her appeals hearings. So, excluding the last one..we're 2 for 3, I don't understand how they can deny me. This is getting really frustrating.
