Was on termorary assignment at Core Logic. The contract was till end of October 2010. The lady who I had replaced had returned and my job was finished by 15th of October. Was still hanging on until end of month but there was no work to do.
I got the news that mother was on death bed. Told the company that I have to leave but the contracting company told them the I could leave only when I resigned.
I resigned and left for India.
When I came back I applied for unemployment benefits. I wrote the separation was not voluntary. The state of California refused me benefits and banned me from claiming benefits for three years.
I appealed. The company sent its representative to the judge’s hearing.
To my surprise, the judge was honest and ruled in my favor.
