[VIRGINIA] & [CALIFORNIA] possible over payment on regular UI. any way to pay it back by filing PUA with backpay?

2020.11.30 22:02 CandleFriend [VIRGINIA] & [CALIFORNIA] possible over payment on regular UI. any way to pay it back by filing PUA with backpay?

This post is going to be long and confusing, as the experience has been for me. I'm going to try to keep it chronological.
On December 31st, 2019 I left my job in Virginia to move to California.
Got a job in California in late February, was laid off due to COVID in early March. I applied for California regular UI before the CARES act was passed, and got my application back in the mail with a handwritten sticky note on it saying to file in Virginia. They never filed my claim.
Then I applied in Virginia, got approved and was on unemployment getting the base pay plus 600 from the CARES ACT from early April to late July.
Late July I took a job with the US Census, and was employed until it came to a close, being laid off in early October. I started weekly certifying in Early October for my old claim in Virginia, but there was an "Outstanding issue."
I called Virginia unemployment, and they told me I had to refile my claim with the new information from the census job, and they would send me a determination in the mail. I did so, but received no determination, only my pin #.
I waited about 2 weeks, then tried unsuccessfully for 2 more weeks to get in contact with Virginia unemployment on the phone, calling at 5:15 AM PST everyday.
I was looking over my termination forms I got from the Census, and they said to file for unemployment in the state where I last worked, so I filed in California, and was approved, and told I can start receiving unemployment the week I stopped certifying in Virginia, but to get the money from the weeks I've been certifying in Virginia since October, I have to go through Virginia.
I finally got through to the Virginia VEC, and they told me that 1, the hold placed on my account is because my original job in Virginia I left in 2019 is now saying I quit without cause, and they told the VEC this while I was working for the Census. I assumed the hold was from the census job, but it was actually from my first job.
And 2, they never filed my application I sent in Virginia in October with my census job.
So since then, I've faxed all my census termination documents to the VEC, and am waiting on an unemployment deputy in Virginia to determine if I left my original job with or without cause.
It is my understanding I will most likely not be eligible considering I left that job to move to another state. But with 2 layoffs in one year, the first being in March, and the second in October, I must qualify for something, such as PUA.
I guess my main question is if I am determined illegible for the money I was already paid by Virginia regular UI and have to pay it back (something like $10000) could I apply for PUA backdated to when I lost my job in March and simply pay it off with that? and if that were an option should I plan to apply in California or Virginia?

Honestly this has been a bureaucratic nightmare through and through. I'm in debt to my landlord already, selling my stuff so I can buy groceries. I feel so overwhelmed by this. There are so many contradicting things I've been told by UI workers. 2020 sucks.

2020.11.29 23:17 JustAnIdiotPlsIgnore Roommates are kicking me out, need help. California.

Hello,
Here is the story. I found this place on craigslist. Three dudes moved in together on a 6 month lease which then defaulted to month-to-month.
One roommate wanted to move out, so they added me. In March I moved in. The landlord ran a background check and a credit check on me, but never added me to the lease. Because the landlord wouldn't pay out a deposit, they wanted me to pay the deposit, cash, to the guy that moved out and I would get what came out of the deposit, which I felt was unfair because they told me they already made damage to the place when they moved in (fucked up wood floors.) I requested that the landlord come in and reevaluate the deposit charges and then once I was added to the lease I would pay my portion of the deposit. The landlord just ignored us and nothing ever happened. They still expected me to pay the deposit to the roommate that left (which I never did because it wasn't fair.) The guy kept asking me and I actually intended on paying him because he was a nice guy, but I wanted to wait until I had the money and could do without it. I'm really glad I didn't because of what happened next.
(I never had access to the website to pay rent either, had to always pay cash to one of the roommates.)
In September, the landlord wanted us to start paying an increased amount, we didn't receive a 30-day notice, so we requested that and said no until we get the notice. He said ok, but never sent it.
Then Nov 1st came around, one roommate was late paying rent. I have a feeling the landlords boss found out we weren't paying an increased amount because soon after that the landlord contacted us again. He wanted us to to sign a lease backdated to May saying we have been paying that increased rate since then. We said no, because it wasn't the truth. He said we can sign a new one year lease from Dec 1st with an increased rate. This conversation occured on the 12th of Nov. He said if we don't sign by the 15th, that he would consider that as our 30 days notice. We talked about it and considering how negligent he has been, we told him we would be taking the 30 days notice option. We told him this on the 15th, so we would be out by Dec 15th.
The very next day, (the 16th of Nov) the guy who wanted the deposit money hit me up and I told him what had happened. That now we are moving out, I can't afford to pay him that because I need the money for a new place. He protested and asked me to borrow money from someone else and that he has been very forgiving about this whole thing. I never responded because well fuck you dude I'm not going to do that. He tells one of the roommates and that roommate confronts me on the 18th of Nov. I say basically how it was unfair and blah blah blah.
Well I guess I did a shit job of explaining my side because the next day (19th of Nov) both the roommates come to my door and tell me that because I said "I was never on the lease, so I don't have to pay a deposit" (which I never said it like this) that they want me out by the 1st of December. They also said the line, "well because you aren't on the lease, we could call the cops on you at any moment and have you taken out" like wtf? We were homies too :(.
Now currently I'm still looking for a place to live and I have background checks pending, but it was thanksgiving week and plus covid, so I've not gotten a response from anything, so I got a storage space for my stuff and I'm just going to sleep in my car. My girlfriend is protesting and saying they can't do this and that I should move my stuff out except my bed and say no.
They have had a dude staying here on the couch since they told me to get out and yesterday I saw a bunch of his stuff in the garage.
Can they do this?
Should I just move my stuff out and say no?
I can elaborate on anything, thanks for taking the time to read if you made it this far.
Tl;dr - roommates are kicking me out and giving me 12 days to get out.

2020.11.26 00:02 LinkMom37 Tricked Insurance Company Into Paying Bills Like They're Supposed To!

The insurance company that my employer uses has a monthly auto-deducted payment that comes from my credit card. I've paid faithfully for four years. A few months ago the company went to run my payment, which declined, because my credit card had expired. I had the new credit card, but the payment was attempted before I got around to changing it over. Rather than contact me to let me know that a payment was missed and attempt to get an alternate payment, the insurance company just terminated my coverage and denied all new claims to that account, including my well visits etc..
As soon as I realized what was going on, I called the company customer service number from my card to give them my new card number and reinstate my insurance. After 30 minutes of giving my information again, explaining, and re-explaining, and finally just asking for a supervisor (because the CSR was reading random selections out of a book or something and wasn't anywhere close to my issue), I discovered it wasn't even the right department. Got transferred to the correct department, where the woman rudely told me that "due to my incompetence", they terminated my coverage and "would not be reinstating it". Hmmm. So I asked when I would be able to re-enroll... and was informed that I would not be able to re-enroll until my company entered Open Enrollment sometime unknown between January and March.
I decided to let it go and just wait until then... until I had a necessary medical issue come up where I absolutely needed it. I called again and asked when Open Enrollment would be. They didn't know, BUT she mentioned "unless you have a MAJOR LIFE CHANGE EXEMPTION". Such as... family death, marriage/divorce, or "LOSS OF PREVIOUS INSURANCE COVERAGE".
ME: "Excuse me ma'am, sorry to interrupt, but I'd like to report a loss of previous insurance coverage."
Not only was my insurance coverage started again, but was backdated to an effective date of when I started four years ago. Guess they'll be paying my bills again, then!
EDIT for clarity: wow this blew up quickly.. inbox overload so trying to answer some common things here rather than reply to every one individually.
A) I do receive notices from my insurance company by mail, email regularly. I check both daily and keep a well organized inbox. I did NOT receive a notice that my plan was being cancelled. Maybe they were supposed to, but they didn't. My "notice" came when I got my statement following a bill, and it was marked declined due to termination of coverage.
B) Yes, it is a credit/ debit deduction, yes it's perfectly legal, and I've been doing it for four years. No, not every company has to do a tax sheltered payroll deduction for every aspect of the insurance company's plan. I would be happy to provide a photo of their sign up page that tells you outright how it's to be paid.
C) This insurance company can use a code from the previous coverage or employer as certification... Since it was the SAME company that terminated my coverage, and they already had me active in their system for other plans (fixed indemnity, dental, vision, life), I didn't have to send anything in and she was able to copy it all over, put a code in, and reinstate the policy.
D) There is always more than what is outside your bubble of experience. Just because your company or state does things a certain way does not mean it's done the same way everywhere. Insurance plans for employers, especially small businesses and employment services, can have different regulations, options, and policies, and state regulations can have impact as well. Please don't think you're being clever by "poking holes".
This was not meant to be a novel in how insurance works, just sharing my experience in how I used a company's policies against them to get what I should have had in the first place.

2020.11.25 18:46 spandxmessiah Payoneer Global Payment Services - Under Review Issue

Here is my situation. I signed up for Payoneer as requested by my business partner. We are members of Tunecore (music distributor) and they now require us to use Payoneer to receive funds. We are both in the U.S. We had already completed 3 separate transactions (totaling in the thousands of dollars) and everything appeared fine and well.

Next, I decided to download and login in to the app and I got a popup notice that I needed to fill out the "Global Payment Service" questionnaire. I have no idea why because my account was already verified. I sent in all bank, tax and ID documents weeks before and was approved. Now my business partner has another transfer he is trying to make to me (Payoneer to Payoneer account) and he is unable to do this (I am assuming this is because I am "Under Review"). Oddly also is that they backdated this request to Oct 22, as though I have been under review since then - that is not correct at all since I was verified a couple days after I signed up - again I already had accepted payments and successfully transferred them to my bank account.

I am curious, has anyone had this experience or similar, and why the need to fill out global payment services after already being approved and successfully accepting payments? I don't plan on using payoneer as a global payment option - only for payoneer to payoneer payments back and forth between my biz partner within the U.S. I have written asking Payoneer for more information, and they have flat out ignored me (promised to respond within 1 business day on their site). When you read reviews, you see the horror stories of awful customer support, but I have also read favorable comments. Any insight you can offer would be great. I am afraid I am going to end up one of those customers stuck in "Under Review" limbo for weeks on end now...

2020.11.25 07:40 HouseDarklyn [LORE] Graviditate

[ CW: Religion, near death / starvation / freezing, fire ]
Backdated
Gwyneth
When Gwyn had been told the news, she had not believed it. Her brother could not get someone pregnant, as he was known to only lay with men. Night had fell, and so with the interruption coming as she wound down for bed, she threw on layers of clothes as quickly as she could. If it were true, she knew she must act quickly.
The sands of a day were hot and unforgiving under the red sun, though the blue moon made them unforgiving in the opposite direction — many a good man had frozen to death at night, forfeiting their lives to the desolation that House Uller was born in. She had heard some say this was why the sands sired cruel children — they had learned it from the land that bore them.
Franklyn brought her horse as she left from out the Hellholt’s sturdy door. Her mind was racing, though she jerked her brother from atop the steed and nearly onto the ground at her feet as she took over the saddle. As she took off with a cloak haphazardly thrown over her and a sword at her side, she made for a harrowing sight — nothing but a giant shroud of darkness galloping forwards at a breakneck speed.
When she reached the wall she had one of the guards bring her a lit torch and gave them the command to open the gate. This I must see for myself, she thought, watching the men take hold of the ropes and pull with all their might — which is what it took to swing the giant red passage open. Most of the Hellholt was built with colossal proportions.
What she saw as the entryway was tended to was someone. They looked like a man at first and from afar, though when she looked down she saw that below their armor protruded a gut that was a stark contrast to the rest of their body — a paunch that looked distinctly gestated. By R’hllor, they were right she thought as she heard Franklyn’s horse catching up with them from a ways away.
The woman was strong, tall and armored. She had a sword at her hip, just like Gwyn did. The woman’s hair was shorn nearly to her scalp, adding to the ambiguous nature of her gender. But when she looked down at that stomach, they matched in that way. The other woman was darker in coloration than even Gwyneth, who was among the darkest of the Westerosi Houses — evidence of her being from somewhere else.
Gwyneth dismounted her horse with nothing but the torch and sheathed sword at her side, though her men put their hands to their weapons to await their orders before being stopped by their magnate when she raised a hand for them to stand down. Gwyneth approached her slowly, letting the torch light the way.
When she was close enough to see the red light of the flames flicker in the other woman’s eyes, she stopped. She could see the woman was wet, assuming she had crossed the river to reach their keep — only adding to Gwyneth’s inclination to believe her.
“They told me you were...” Gwyneth said, lowering the light slightly to gesture to her stomach, insinuating that she was bearing a child.
“They told you correctly, then,” the woman answered huskily, shivering from the cold that Gwyn assumed was foreign to her — though it was safe to assume the wet clothes and armor did little to help.
“And what is your name?” Asked Gwyn.
“Xoja. Xoja, from The Summer Isles,” the woman answered shakily.
Gwyneth reached a hand out to the woman, choosing to believe her at her face value. If it was her brother’s child, then it would need to be taken care of like any other member of their family and Gwyneth had empathy with the pregnant woman as she was much the same herself.
“Trust me, and come,” Gwyneth requested of the stranger as Franklyn rode forward skeptically. He worried that the stranger could hurt their leader, and given that Gwyneth was pregnant herself, she was vulnerable for one of the first times in her life. She was always a domineering, robust woman. But now she had another person to worry about inside of her.
Gwyneth gave her torch away and was helped onto her stallion by a guard, and then Xoja was helped on behind her. She felt the woman’s swollen stomach at her back, and took riding with her as cargo very seriously — though she was the best rider in the Hellholt, and so she trusted no one more with the job than herself.
When they reached the Keep and departed from their horse, they went inside to find Nesirah there waiting on them in a cloak so red it was nearly black. Gwyneth was not surprised by Nesirah’s quickness, as she was unsure if she even slept. What surprised her was Grandmother Mellei’s appearance, as for her age Gwyneth had expected her to stay asleep.
“Nesirah, she’s freezing to death. Run her a bath with water that is steaming hot to warm her, and Grandmother go find her some clothes from my quarters — they’ll be too big, but will suffice for now. And then go have a room made for her. Quickly!” She ordered, and everyone obeyed her without question as Nesirah took the strange woman’s hand and led her down into the depths of the Hellholt.
Xoja
Xoja stripped her armor off clumsily, desperately needing to be given shelter and warmth. It was not expensive, and was truthfully little more than some chains that might keep an arrow or two from killing her; even she could not remember who she had stolen it from now. She shrugged off her tunic and kicked off the boots before letting her britches and sword fall carelessly as well.
She smelled terrible. She had trekked by riverside for days for some Qorgyle man’s promise that the man she slept with’s family lived here. Nightly she would repeat the names of the family members she had been told about, and where it might be. And aside from skin that glowed from the prospect of motherhood, her whole appearance was evidence of that journey.
She watched Nesirah draw her bath and saw her sprinkle some droplets into the water that made the whole room reek of some overbearing florals — though, anything was an improvement to the body odor Xoja was producing. She thought about the lady who had took her hand earlier in the night. A giantess who could do some damage if you crossed her, she figured. We could’ve used her on the ship, she thought.
Nesirah was much the opposite. Small, and quiet with a mousy way about her as she went about fixing the bath by pouring potfuls of boiling water into the basin. It was finally ready when she took Xoja’s hand and led her over to it. The heat took Xoja’s breath away immediately when she stepped in, though the relief was euphoric. Her one hand was held by Nesirah who helped lower her into the perfumed water, and the other held her stomach.
“You’re lucky,” Nesirah commented as she took to her knees beside the tub to begin washing her while also looking for any concerning injuries.
“Lucky?” Xoja offered back in a deep and thickly accented voice. From her voice to even her musculature, all that would give her gender away to most eyes was her now turgid gut and the faintest hint of breasts she revealed now that she was in the nude.
“Lucky that R’hllor led you here to us when he did. Much longer out there could’ve been disastrous for you or your baby. Your’s and Lewyn’s baby...” Nesirah said, quiet and breathy as she yanked Xoja’s nearest arm into the air to wash and look under it.
Xoja purposefully ignored the comment about Lewyn. Where she was from, the concept of bastardy was nearly unheard of. But now, as she sit pregnant with a Westerosi’s child, she knew by their standards what their child would be. This was the only option though — a child could not accompany her as she lived a dangerous life and had no alternative.
R’hllor?
She did not know the Red God’s reach had came this far. She was not particularly religious, though the statement rang true. She was on the brink of death, and whether The Lord of Light was real or not it was indisputable that his believers had saved her.
The woman who Gwyneth had called ‘grandmother’ stepped into the privy room without so much as a knock. Where Xoja was from, the elders were held in high regard and so she guessed perhaps it was the same here. The woman was maybe one of the oldest she had ever met, rotund, and out of breath when she was met with the steam of the room.
“I brought you,” Mellei said, taking a deep breath before continuing, “one of Lady Gwyneth’s gowns and a pair of my old shoes. I just hope they fit,” she said, taking a seat on the commode so that they could talk for a moment while waving steam from out of her face.
“They said my grandson is responsible for that swelling,” Mellei commented to the naked woman. As she spoke, Nesirah sighed and stood up from her knees to help Xoja from the bath. Luckily, she had not been injured but she was exhausted and fatigued — though it was glad news that was all.
“Oh, no shame in it. If I had a gold coin for every time I was pregnant and ran through that river because I’d lost my wits... Well, I had three children, so I guess I’d have gold coins,” she said with a hearty laugh, joining Nesirah in helping her. “I guess I shouldn’t say so, but I’m only surprised because I thought it’d be just as likely that he’d get pregnant than him impregnating someone else,” Mellei joked, though her very real skepticism was apparent.
Xoja gave a polite grin, though made no comment as the two women dressed her in a gown and helped her with her shoes before leading her to the dining hall to nourish her and the little Lewyn that she had growing inside of her allegedly. Already she felt much better.
Xoja sat down and was fed desert rabbit meat and cooked desert milkweed in front of the great brazier that was nearly as tall as Lady Gwyneth would be, she figured. When she was done, she was taken to her chambers to be given respite.
Gwyneth & Xoja
As the day broke, Gwyneth was full of mixed feelings. On one hand, she would have a sister in some sense — something that made her very happy. Since Frynne had left her, there was a hole in her stead, and she could feel that being filled with Xoja’s presence already. And their two children could play together.
On the other hand, there were doubts about Xoja’s origins. There were doubts about the validity of her claims. How? How could he...? she found herself wondering. To her knowledge, he only ever had eyes for men — and most of all, Daeron. Though, out of sympathy for her predicament, she found herself giving Xoja the benefit of the doubt.
She wandered down the hall after she had fully awoken, then went down the steps. The Hellholt was a maze of sorts, a labyrinth of paths that were carved mostly into the natural land. Scenes and motifs were etched into the red stone intricately, though the one that appeared most often was the symbol of fire. When she reached Xoja’s room, she listened carefully, but heard nothing.
She cracked the door open, and saw Xoja was laying turned away from the door. Allowing herself in, Gwyneth went to the cot and sat beside the woman who’s skin was a stark contrast to the beige bedding.
Xoja, especially now that she was clean from a bath, was nearly an exquisite beauty even though she was so manly. It was interesting to see her shoulders with a gauzy white fabric over them, dainty and feminine, when just the night before she looked like a sturdy man ready for battle.
She went to speak, but was cut off before she could.
“Thank you.”
The voice came from Xoja, revealing that she was not asleep. It was subtly surprising, but Gwyneth was glad all the same. She turned on her other side, now looking up to Gwyn as she lay there. Her accent and mannish voice were endearing Gwyneth thought. If it was true what she said about Lewyn, then she could see how he could’ve fallen for her.
“No need to thank me, ‘Xoja from The Summer Isles,’” Gwyneth quoted from their original meeting. “It is all R’hllor’s doing, he just works through me. Thank Him instead.”
Xoja took her hands and rested them on her stomach in thought. Does she have a point? She wondered. Here she was, being welcomed by these strangers in R’hllor’s name. She was a stranger. A sinner. A piratical thief, a nonbeliever. And still, with blind faith they gave her refuge.
“This R’hllor... You really believe in him, don’t you?” Xoja asked, almost incredulously, but starting to feel slightly convinced by the strange events that had brought her here.
“Oh, yes Xoja. We all do. I see his miracles everyday,” Gwyneth said, moving her hand to where Xoja was resting hers on her own belly.
“I see one before my very eyes right here.”
Xoja wanted to cry. Gwyneth called the child a blessing, a miracle. But Xoja knew from the stories she had heard that her baby would not be treated like a miracle by the society it would be raised in. A society that hated bastards, even with the leniency of Dorne, they would be treated different than true born children.
“My baby will be a bastard.”
“Hush! There are no bastards here. Only children born by means of force are bastards, Xoja. Any child born from love can never be sinful in R’hllor’s eyes,” Gwyneth explained.
“But... but I don’t believe in R’hllor,” Xoja confessed, wishing not to lie to the sister she had found here. Though some part of her was beginning to see the Lord’s Light.
Gwyn smiled. “All the same, R’hllor loves you. The only enemies he has are people who would seek to do his followers harm.”
There was a moment of silence when neither woman said anything. It lasted an awkwardly long time, but perhaps it was necessary to reflect on all that had happened — especially to Xoja.
“I saw the red temple. Could you bring me there?”
Gwyneth was much obliged, and though the distance was long, it felt much faster than the trek to get to the Hellholt that was for certain. The temperature was now more like what Xoja was used to in her home. Warm. When they reached the Keep, Nesirah was there, like Gwyneth knew she would be.
Nesirah turned at the noise, and made no face of happiness when she saw Gwyn and Xoja — though, she rarely made a face for anything. She was silhouetted by a crackling fire, causing her to be backlit by its glow which made her dark features even darker in contrast. In her hands was a tin of oil used for ritual purposes.
“Come, you child. I can see it in your eyes that you still have your doubts about R’hllor’s serene magnificence. Proof abounds, it is all around you, if one chooses to see it.”
She turned her back to them and started speaking in a tongue that neither Gwyn nor Xoja understood, seeming to be conjuring up another entity. Nesirah’s once quiet and meek voice was now commanding and otherworldly as she swayed back and forth and made motions like she was clawing her face — letting out screams and wails for some ritualistic purpose.
As she stumbled around the fire, all of the sojourners in attendance so too rose and joined in on the dancing around the fire, screaming and crying out for forgiveness, all speaking in tongues and hisses, begging in every way for their sins to be forgiven. Clawing at their faces symbolically, as the flames whipped with the movement.
Gwyneth had been holding Xoja’s hand, but even she broke free and joined in on the creed. They were singing, chanting, and crying in complete disarray which made for a cacophony of worship that was deafening and mesmerizing all at once. Then, everything reached its peak when Nesirah cast her hands forward and like a volcano the inferno unfurled upwards from the pyre while everyone screamed in unison and hugged one another.
Xoja was transfixed, and she began wanting to join them. She had no family to speak of. And so her plans to have her baby and leave to go back to being a seafarer slowly faded away from her mind. Here, they would be her family. Here, her daughter would always be taken care of.
Nesirah turned to her, tears running down her face while everyone still bowed to the flame that was somehow still steadily licking the extremely high ceilings that were needed for these fire rituals. There was a horrific beauty about fire. How it held the power to destroy everything in its way and demanded respect.
“Lord of Light, thank you for another day under your sun that keeps us warm. Lead us from the darkness, O Lord. Fill us with fire so we may always see your shining path, please, never let us be led astray. You are the flame that gives us longing, the spark that gives us wisdom, the burning that gives us hope.”
”Lord of Light, protect us! For the night is long and full of terrors. Lord of Light, protect us! For the night is long and full of terrors.” They all chanted while Xoja was the only exception.
She stepped forward to the fire where they all bowed, and took her spot then. The flames were dying down to normal as she did, and she had been made a believer by the showing of hospitality and unison she had seen. Then, they chanted again, and she joined in — a follower of The Lord of Light now.
”Lord of Light, protect us! For the night is long and full of terrors.” Everyone said now while Gwyneth gave a satisfied and gladdened smile. Now, Xoja truly was her sister — both by blood and by faith.

2020.11.12 12:58 Typogram My employer is withholding holiday entitlement because I breached my contract. Can they do this?

I don't know if anyone can advise me on this a bit but I'd really appreciate some pointers on where I stand and what I can do
So I was on a fixed term, 2 year contract from October 2018 to October 2020. I was put on furlough from the start of the scheme in March to last the remainder of my contract which I was told in July would not be extended, but would remain on furlough till my contract finished. I had 144 hours of holiday pay which was going to be allocated to me in the months of Sept and Oct.
It states in my contract and my furlough contract that I must not do any other work for other employers while I'm on furlough, however, I did do some extra work on the side as a sole trader and was caught by my employer because he saw a photo that somebody posted on LinkedIn. So I accept I did breach my contract.
My employer then emailed me to say I had committed fraud and that the matter will be taken very seriously and that I must be honest and tell them exactly what I've been doing and who for, threatening to contact the person who I was working for to make sure I was being truthful. I replied by apologising and basically tried to explain that as my contract was due to end I couldn't turn down additional work as I was facing an uncertain future due to current times. I didn't say who I had been working for just that I accept I have broken my contract. I also admitted that I had worked 32 days to date. I wish I hadn't admitted this but at the time I was quite worried that I had committed serious fraud and didnt want to make the matter worse. I attempted to resign which was regected due to me being under investigation and that my money would now be withheld until a decision is made.
I didn't hear anything from them for a month until I recieved a letter end of Oct saying the investigation is finished and they have decided to accept my resignation which had now been backdated by a month. I resigned end of Sept and now it was stated as end of Aug. I replied to ask why the resignation was backdated and they said because it would allow them to stop paying me any more from that date, and that the other option is to discipline me for gross misconduct and ask for the money back. By doing this it works in my favour as I won't end up with a disciplinary on my record and that they want me to enjoy my career.
So my questions are;
Are they being compliant with how they are handling this?
Am I able to get any money back? In particular the 144 hours of holiday pay, which is statutory right?
What repercussions could this have for me in the long term? I'm unlikely to ask them for a reference now and have a pretty good reputation any way and not struggling for work a sole trader. I have in writing them thanking me for my work so they can't say I was bad at my job.
Should I even bother to persue this? I know this is making me emotional and I'm aware my decision making is possibly swewed by anger but there is principle to this. And I don't want them to think they can get away with treating people like this. The tone of the emails are aggressive and incompetent; false accusations of fraud and threatening to break gdpr laws and pretty much blackmailing me to walk away. Part of me feels the guy should be held accountable for this sort of behaviour and shouldn't be in the position he is. But am I getting too worked up?
Any thoughts?

2020.11.12 01:52 Accomplished-Lab-860 AMD Switchable graphics/ GPU not detected

When updating drivers I noticed my laptop wasn't performing quite as well, looking into it I noticed the second GPU (AMD Radeon (TM) R5 M330 Discrete/Switchable) wasn't being used.
AMD adrenaline doesn't have an option for switching the GPU (Settings-Graphics-Custom doesn't work as the custom tab is greyed out), I attempted using windows settings in graphics settings but it doesn't list the M330 as an option.
Wondering if anyone else has had this problem and ideas on how to fix it.
(Tried backdating drivers, factory resetting drivers using AMD Radeon software restarting etc).

2020.11.10 08:14 gouldilocks123 I requested a backdate and now my entire claim is pending, and I stopped receiving benefits

I applied for benefits originally in mid-march and wasn't approved until May. I've been collecting benefits successfully since May. And I've already sent all of my wage information.
Over the last couple months I've been calling and trying to get my claim backdated and about a week and a half ago I got someone on the phone that went to a supervisor and manually backdated my claim , so I was really excited.
When I logged in to claim weeks the effective date of my claim was correct, but there was no option to claim back weeks and my monetary status went from active to pending. At first I thought this wasn't a big deal and that it would work itself out, but when I requested benefits a few days ago, it said my payments were on hold, and I didn't get a deposit like I normally do.
So instead of getting back pay, now my whole claim is pending again and I haven't gotten paid the normal bi-weekly payment I was absolutely counting on. I'm super stressed out because it took them 6 weeks to complete my initial claim and I can't afford even another week or two of my claim being on hold since it's already been over three weeks since my last deposit.
I've tried calling a couple times but they tell me I just have to wait and won't give me a time frame. It just seems completely insane that someone over there would go in and change my claim manually over the phone, but screw things up so I no longer get benefits, and then they can't do anything to fix it over the phone and I have to wait an indefinite amount of time.
Does anyone have any advice or insight? Thanks for your time reading this

2020.11.09 20:50 Transpirateclub [Pennsylvania] PUA filing and backdating issues: I CANNOT FIND CLAIM IN PORTAL. Advice?

I am looking for advice on my PA PUA claim. This is my story:
My university-based employer closed their physical location in March due to the Governor's closure orders. I was offered telework until the end of the semester, on May 10th. On May 11th I officially became unemployed. I filed for regular UC on May 14th. My eligibility letter and PIN did not come in the mail, so I phoned and emailed the UC office until I got my PIN in the mail in mid-July. I back filed my bi-weekly claims and continued to file bi-weekly claims until I got an email on August 29th that told me I was ineligible for regular UC because my annual wages were too low. I was advised to apply for PUA.
So I did. I filed for PUA online the next day. I sent an email to [email protected] to request a backdated claim and explained why I needed to backdate (i.e. I was not informed of my ineligibility). This was about 2 months ago now (11/09/2020). I checked back on the PUA portal a few days later and under the claim summary tab, I was met with the message "Currently you do not have an Unemployment Insurance claim filed on the system. [Please file one below]." I thought this was odd because I had submitted my claim a few days earlier, but assumed I had made a mistake when submitting and filed again. Well, I check back on the portal after I think 2 weeks and am met with the same message. I cannot find evidence of my submitted claim anywhere in the portal. So I file again. I have filed several times now and am always met with the same issue. I have of course emailed about this issue but haven't heard back. Whenever I call, I get a busy signal.
I started a remote job with a HongKong based company in mid-September, so I finally have some money coming in. However, I really need that unemployment compensation to pay off debts accumulated while I was between employers. I also moved out of PA to SC to stay with family in June to avoid going into further debt for the bills and rent I couldn't pay. I mention this to say that I cannot make any in-person appointments in PA for this issue. (Are they even offering in-person appointments? I mean, doesn't matter much to me living a 12-hour drive away.)
Unemployed users and UC experts of Reddit: do you have advice for me? Do you know what I can do to get the UC benefits I qualify for and have been paying taxes to support for several years? What are my options in this situation? Is there something I'm doing wrong?

2020.11.06 20:15 djbluntmagic [Pennsylvania] Unemployment Nightmares. Missing Financial Determination, Missing Payments. Desperate for help

I filed an initial claim via the normal process back in March, before PUA was an option. I never received a notice of financial determination. I received my PIN in late April and filed biweekly claims for the weeks of 3/28/2020 and 4/4/2020. I never received my money, and only on 9/10, after months of trying daily, was able to get through to the Service Center phone line and find out I was determined financially ineligible. This financial determination was never delivered to me, otherwise I would have filed for PUA back in April. The UC Service Center associate who processed my call was hopeful that I would accordingly be In light of this I am hoping I can file claims for weeks dating back to my initial claim on March 22 or at least to April when the financial determination was issued.
So I filed for PUA, chose direct deposit, was approved, requested a backdate to March (still haven't heard back on that), and received my first payment via check despite applying for direct deposit. I renewed my claim every subsequent week, and my dashboard insists all payments have been issued. But I haven't got any money since the first check, and nothing in my bank account. None of my mailing or banking details have changed. I finally got through to the PUA hotline but they say they're only helping with initial claims for now.
I don't know where to turn. My money is missing, they're ignoring my direct deposit request even if it wasn't missing. I can't get through to anyone to help me. Has anyone else gone through something similar? Or have any suggestions for recourse?

2020.11.06 04:02 USMCPerson Back pay question

Not sure if there's a calculator or anything out there for this. I've seen plenty of back pay calculators for 10% - 100%. But does anyone know of one that can factor in SMC-S rate? I know those calculators aren't 100% accurate. I should be getting backdated to February 2018. Just trying to get an estimate of how much it will be. I'll probably just have to be patient and wait. Nothing I've seen shows an option to add special monthly rates and my math is a little rusty as I was originally 90%. Too much math for me at the moment...

2020.10.31 16:04 Geenainva What are my options when the dealership has lost the e-signed contract for a new car in Virginia?

(Virginia) I took delivery of a new Tesla. The bottom panel fell off on the highway on my way home and I had to be escorted by police back to the dealership because I couldn’t take the car over 18mph. While there we noticed significant paint issues – the dealership even took photos of the damage and told me to bring it back the next day and they would take care of it. However, it took 2 weeks for them to fit me in and it has now been at their body shop repair for two weeks. Meanwhile, I get a call from their finance dept saying they have lost my e-signed loan paperwork. They sent me a new credit check form and (backdated) loan agreement asked me to resign. I don’t want the car - there just have been too many issues with it, and the repainting has likely devalued the car. I told them to keep the car and return my down payment. They are insisting I resign as it is too late for a ‘return’ - even though it’s been in their shop this whole time. Do I have to go through another credit check and sign a new loan agreement? What are my obligations and options?

2020.10.29 04:09 tashatheklutz Paid corona leave?

A few weeks ago, I got an email about COVID at our site, and I started having symptoms 3 days later. I put in for points, because I am a white badge, and called ERC to get a runaround and sent an email to HR asking what I needed to do, with zero response as to how to start this process. I continued to have symptoms thst whole week so I took off the rest of that week, and the following, as my symptoms persisted and then my son also started having symptoms.
I was continually trying to reach someone through this because I didn't know what steps I needed to take, if they provided testing as I'm not insured, if I needed to go to a doctor and get time off, or what. I couldn't afford to take this time, as it put me over the point limit.
I got an email that 2nd week about my points, and I emailed back, explaining the situation and giving exact dates, asking what I needed to. Nothing back.
So come that Sunday, I went in as scheduled as my son and I no longer had symptoms and went inmediately to HR, asking what I needed to do to cover that time off, and asked about getting tested so I could come back.
They gave me the Corona leave paper, told me I needed to get tested, email proof of scheduled test, and test results to HR, which I did at Walgreens the next and immediately sent the pictures of my test stuff. I got an email back finally, and it said to stay home until I got my results. It also said that to cover the time I was actually sick, I'd need to get a doctor's documentation for that time off. My doctor wouldn't backdate for a time like that, so I figured I just lost that week in points and now risk being fired.
I emailed back and explained that and asked for other options, and have gotten nothing since. Now, I was told this would be excused and by all implications paid. My a to z reflects that those days they told me to take were excused, and my pay period breakdown also reflects 40 hrs excused. I cant add the picture, but its under the Pay section, and listed under the pay period breakdown that I had 40hrs.
However, my pay statements lists only the 22 minutes I was in the building asking about all this. Is this normal, and my actual deposit will include this time, or will it come later? I'll be pretty upset if everything including the HR lady I spoke to indicated I would be paid for this, since I wasn't even sick and wanted to work.
Any advice would be appreciated!

2020.10.28 23:41 BorkyBro Best way to do small monthly single stock buys?

Hello, years-long reddit lurker, been checking out this subreddit for only about a month so I will get right into it.
I was disabled in Iraq war as a young adult. The Military fought my claim for 8 years but finally, I did win and now have a $100k windfall + ~$3200/mo for life. Also small note the VSO tells me they backdated wrong so they have filled to amend that and I could get another 100k but after +8 years of the jerk around I don't expect it.
Anyhow, I live off of ~2k a month after adjusting to the tripled income. That covers all my rent, food, bills, I have zero debt. So I was thinking of putting like 50k + 500/mo into a retirement fund and then whatever else extra I have each month into some long term single stock bets for more risk/reward. I don't want to do options or anything wild, just like throw some money at a business I think has potential.
I feel pretty safe now with the monthly payments after a decade of holding on by a pinky, my goal is some traveling money in my 60s onward as well as some shots at bigger money if I hit a company that goes huge. Schwabe seems to fit the bill for the retirement part so I have a call with them later this week, but for the monthly single stock buys should I get e-trade or Robinhood or something?
Any advice is appreciated.

2020.10.23 15:09 Low_Alarm_2018 [california] finally thought I was getting somewhere, then EDD throws another roadblock at me

I'm so at my wit's end and have no idea where to get any assistance on this matter. I came here a few weeks ago because my problem for months has been that every time I requested to backdate my claim, I would have them respond telling me that the particular date I chose would change my base period and I hadn't made enough last year to have any other period as my base period??? Well FINALLY after calling EDD for months trying to figure it out, I got ahold of a worker and just asked her when the earliest date was that I could request a backdate to without it changing my base period. She finally told me June 7th! So great, even tho I lost my job due to covid on March 11th, I could request to backdate to June 7th and at least get a month of the $600 PUA payments that I wouldnt have received otherwise.
So finally, I request June 7th and get the answer about recieving an amended form and how my request has been submitted. A few days later, alllll of my previous weeks to certify from June 7th to August 15th (I had originally made my claim on August 16th) had shown up on my UI account. So I certify for all of them! Like yay I finally got it fixed!! Keep in mind I have received MAYBE $1500 from CA EDD since aug 16th. For two days they stayed pending, then the very first week (6/7-6/14) was paid out to me. The rest of the maybe 11 weeks all turned to NOT PAID. then I check and suddenly my claim balance is down to $0 and my weekly benefit amount goes from $174 to $54. Then I get a notification saying that I've received maximum benefits paid. This part really confused me because I thought that your claim balance was supposed to be your weekly amount times 26 weeks. Obviously it hasn't been anywhere near 26 weeks and I've barely gotten anything from them. Then I called in trying to get it figured out and the woman who answered told me that because I'm ONE of the retroactive weeks, I said I didn't look for work, that that automatically made me ineligible. Which confuses me still because it says clear as day on CA EDD website that they had made the work search requirements not required until further notice due to covid-19. And that you are not required to look for work to receive your benefits. So the worker said she couldn't do anything else, just that she'd put in for someone to call me about my claim. I haven't gotten any calls or had anyone reach out. I did get a text saying I had automatically been applied for an extension and to look out for more info But then a few days ago I had the option on UI online to reopen my claim, so I went ahead and did that. My claim balance is still sitting at a big old $0 and it says I won't have any weeks to certify for until 11/01/2020. I also got my amended unemployment award in the mail which shows that I'm no longer getting regular UI payments but now I'm getting the Pandemic unemployment which is why my weekly benefit is only $54..on this paper too it says that my entire claim balance now is only $704. So I'm wondering, am I just never going to get that back pay that I certified for?? How come they paid the very first week out and none of the rest? Is there seriously nothing I can do? I did see that I can appeal with the form sent in with my amended unemployment award, so I guess that is my next step? It's just so INSANELY frustrating. I lost my job due to covid back in March. Everyone around me has gotten their lump sum of like a minimum of $10,000. Including my boyfriend who filed just 2 weeks before I did. Could anyone please just explain why exactly this is happening o what I need to do to just get what I have been told is my right as a california citizen.. all I got on here with my last question was like 3 people insinuating that I was trying to make a fraudulent claim or that maybe I just didn't qualify in the first place. Or my personal favorite, that if I made it this far without my back pay then obviously I'll live. I've gone all through the questions and can't find anything about what I've been dealing with. So if anyone could please help me out, this has been such a crazy hard fight for months now. Living out in california has absolutely not been easy and just because they are refusing to pay me out doesn't mean I've just had the funds to make it work! I've been on the verge of being evicted because I'm so far behind with rent. I luckily have food stamps to eat. And sure I can absolutely and have been looking for another job now that things are more open out here. But it doesn't make all of the thousands of dollars in bills that I owe that I desperately need that money for. I'm going to stop whining and complaining for now and just hope that someone can actually give some decent advice cuz at this point I'm not sure where to turn.

I would love to hear from anyone at all who got a resolution! I filed 6 weeks ago, submitted my ID a month ago, and still showing pending. Spoke to an EDD rep a week ago and she said my ID docs look good and I should just be waiting for them to verify my ID. I’m literally homeless and running out of options, and would love to hear something positive.
10/26 UPDATE - Claims went from pending to paid today! Now I just have to get my BOA Card and backdate and all is well!

2020.10.18 09:34 Dystopianrealityy Filing late retroactive unemployment

I got fired in March, not because of covid (my employer stayed open), but because I generally just sucked at the job and on top of that had some terrible coworkers who harassed and lied about me to the boss. I didn't file for unemployment. I tried, but due to the hectic time, I couldn't get through to the office on the phone and the website kept crashing. I also had a weird issue where I couldn't type out my social onto the site to log in to file, and tried multiple devices. I am not sure if this is an issue with the site or what. Well I got a new job in June, and while I have switched jobs since I have not been unemployed other than from Mar-June, in which I just worked instacart to make (barely) enough to survive. So those 4 months I was unemployed really hurt me financially. I ended up burning through all my (small) savings and maxing my credit out on my card. I also crashed my car and can't afford to fix it so now I dont have a vehicle. I sprained my ankle a week ago at my new job and while its healing I have been working fewer hours this week. I know there are others in worse spots than I am but I am genuinely wanting to try now and get at least some unemployment from the job that fired me in march, when all this started. I know that getting back pay is not unheard of, I am just wondering how to go about doing it and explaining the situation to at least see if I qualify since the 4 months I wasnt working are still heavily affecting me. I was wondering how to file a backdated claim? The phone number for the office is just having me request them to call me and they never do. The new claim option on the site doesn't seem to be tailored to late claims. I know I prob should have kept trying after the first few issues with the site crashing and phones but I was so depressed and stopped caring after getting fired and I regret that. I live in Colorado

2020.10.16 00:27 Purplepeal Ex partner giving notice of occupation rent.

Hello I hope someone can help answer this question. I'm in England.
Background
My ex and I are going through a messy financial separation, where I'm trying to buy her half of our house. We were not married.
After we split I was living in a flat and had another place lined up to live rent free, house sitting, for my sister. However my ex who was in our shared house at the time decided to move out. So I had to move back in to cover bill's and for security etc. I have an email from her when she moved, saying she would continue to pay the mortgage on the house. We both share costs of it 5050. She also gets benefits that help pay for her rent for 12months at the flat she is now in.
Just this month she has said she wants to reduce her mortgage payment to 1/4 and I pay 3/4 as she is low on money and I get the advantage of living in the house. She moved out because she hates the house, it's a mess and has no kitchen.
Anyway I dont trust her at all (long story) and think if we do this she will draw out my purchase of the house, using the lower payments she makes as leverage to make me agree to a lower settlement as she wants over 50% of the split (also a long story). I have suggested either I pay all the mortgage from now on and we account for that in the split, or she holds out 2 or 3months till we exchange and uses a 0% credit card to cover short term cash problems.
Her response to this was to say she is giving me notice that she is going to backdate occupational rent to when she moved out in March. She can get legal aid at the moment so she is likely to try to do this via a solicitor.
My question is can she backdate this notice? Given she already said she would pay the mortgage when she moved out (in email) that I had an alternative place to stay for free (that she ignored) and as I have suggested 2 other options that help her cash flow at the moment, which was her reason for asking to reduce her payments. Her solution doesn't help her cash flow now anyway and just seem like a malicious threat.
Thanks in advance.
