I was laid off from my job as of 9/1/2012 and have been collecting unemployment compensation. In December, I went out on a limb and applied to a position that was unrelated to my work experience, and was hired on the spot (they must've been desparate for help). I took the drug test and passed. I trained for two days with no pay. After the second day of training, I decided that the job was not for me, and chose not to start the job.
Dept of Labor & Industry showed this company as my ex-employer. I explained that I never worked there, and the Dept of L&I agreed that I should continue to receive unemployment.
The company that I never actually worked for has appealed the decision stating that I failed without good cause to accept suitable work. I am now in danger of losing my unemployment, and have to go to a hearing in two days.
Why would they do this??
