My former employer is pushing me to the brink! First they lie to me about my job saying things are fine. Then they say they are shutting down and I no longer have a job. Then the skanky owner says I'm sure you can get unemployment benifits but if you have a problem with them let me know. I file for unemployment benefits only to find out they have not paid a dime into the system. The UI office told me I could still file but it would be denied and I would have to open an investigation to even file and still I would get denied until the investigation is resolved. So after I go ahead & do what the UI office tells me to do the skank bag owner calls me up acting like she is doing me a favor by offering me a part time job and that I should have waited for her to decide what she was going to do with the company before filing for UI. Like I am supposed to put my entire life on hold while she decides what she is going to do even though she said my job has been eliminated. Meanwhile I get a letter from the IRS saying my 2011 tax return does not match their records. The company I listed as my employer does not exist. I tell her what happened and she admitted they haven't paid any taxes in the past year and a half! My life is a complete flipping mess now because of that skank. She had the nerve to say it was my fault they are going under because they paid me too much money. So how is that my fault?! Then she says I had to know they weren't doing well and should have left on my own even though she said many times over the past year that everything was great. WHAT?! So she thinks her irresponsible actions are my fault! And they have not even paid me for the last week that I worked but they say they are going to pay me by the end of the next pay period. Which is this Friday but I am not holding my breath. She has lied to me too many times to believe anything she says. Of course I am looking for a job but the economy is not at it's healthiest & it doesn't help that I am 55 years old and now competing with 30 & 40 somethings. I would like to rip every dam hair out of that skank bags head!
