1. I was fired without cause on 8/20/2010. I waited my waiting week and started to collect benefits from a previous employer who laid me off the previous year. Which I already had a waiting week on the previous year but did not collect any benefits as I started a new job right away. Then exactly 2 months later that claim was closed and I had to open a new claim from the employer that fired me. Now I have another waiting week. Now heres the issue: Because I was fired, I am being penalized by 1 employer 2 weeks just because my benefits had to switch from 1 employer to the next. This can’t be right, is it?
