Last year my husband had a good job... he lost it ( his was working in a law office, and they lost alot of clients so most of the people working there lost their job) .... he got unemployment for a month and found another job in which he was making almost a dollar more... well after a month they got rid of a ton of people including my husband... he got unemployment again for 2 months ( and has now been at his job that he has now) .... that was a hard time and those times were the only times he has ever been without a job since he was 18 ...
Well the second time he got unemployment, he got payed a little more than before, but we didnt think anything of it because he was making more at the second job... ( and we assumed it just went off of the last job) ... It wasnt like a ton of money, just enough to barely cover the bills....
THEn we get a "notice" that he has "frauded" unemployment.... we couldnt figure out what they meant so he called and they said that they were paying to much for his unemployment and he didnt say anything ... well we didnt know we wasnt suppose to get that much, that much was what we were told we were going to get - we didnt have any reason to think we were suppose to call and make sure they were giving us the right amount...
He had to write a letter "explainging himself" ... and then he would have to go to like a hearing over this.... we contacted them several times about when to find out when he / we were suppose to go...we heard nothing, and now today we get a letter saying that he would be unable to get unemployment again due to him frauding them.
I mean he does have a good job now... hopefully he gets to keep it ..... but now it just makes me worried 1. in case he ever does lose his job again and 2. He has always been been a hard working and honest and now this is something that could basically "follow him" ... I mean is thise like a public record type thing ?
We dont even know what else to do to set it straight ?
