Default Re: Quite True

Welcome to California. One employee was drinking at lunch. One failed to show up 4 days of his first two weeks of work. One flat out could not do the job he was hired to do.



All 3 appeals to a state board, in person, all parties present, resulted in unemployment on my account.

Reasons given above. An employee needs to threaten bodily harm or maliciously damage property to be disqualified.

My feeling is the state of California doesn't want to pay and they get to make the ultimate ruling on the case.

In every jurisdiction where I've practiced, the employer will have to pay full unemployment benefits to the mechanic for the termination, as it was entirely for the employer's convenience.



As to a lawsuit -- unless there was an employment contract (unlikely, in my experience, but not impossible), then no viable suit would lie.



As to 'rights' -- generally 'rights' refer to your relationship to your government, i.e., no deprivation of property without due process, no governmental interference with free speech, assembly, no search or siezure witho warrant, etc., etc. or, as mentioned above, governmentally protected interests, such as provided by civil rights laws (no discrimination bassed on race, creed, etc.). Any other 'rights' you may have, particularly vis a vis an employer arive from legally enforceable promises made in a contract.

Default Ummm...

Blue states, on average, pay more in taxes than they get back in Federal spending...just the opposite in the Red states (not all, but most).



If you do work hard and pay lots of taxes in a Red state, you're a sucker!

I believe that's the first time I've even seen "Polaris" and "superior product" together in the same sentence before.

Default Be glad you're not in Mexico

If you terminate an employee in Mexico you have to pay them six months severance.

I tell you one thing, If I was a customer of this ****heads (I ride a yamaha, too) I would inform them that they had lost me as a customer, and exactly why. Way to show your customers and potential customers what a douchebag you are.
