Oh my goodness I am so so sorry. That is an extremely difficult situation to have to deal with. I hope that he is able to find work as soon as possible and that you are able to work through this together and support each other as best as you can.

I am so sorry about this. Something similar happened to my brother. He was fired, but they couldn’t give him a reason why (he was a waiter at the time). He was down about it, but eventually he found another job and became a bar tender. Then he was the head bar tender/manager. Now he is a Groomsmen of a restaurant. I guess it was a blessing in disguise because he has a better job now. 

I hope everything works out for your husband and that he finds another job soon.

@cbee: Awe hun, I’m so sorry to hear this.  Unemployment for one person adds tremendous stress to any relationship but it seems compounded since both of you are going through it. Do you have any leads for new jobs? I know it’s not easy to find employment right now.

@cbee: The same exact thing just happened to my fiance – twelve days before our wedding. He was accused of something he didn’t do and let go because of it. He’s fighting tooth and nail, but it doesn’t look promising. You and your family will definitely be in my prayers. Best of luck!

@cbee: OMG I’m so sorry and amazingly surprised by how similar are stories are!!!

DH lost his job in October, we weren’t married yet happening in 2 months (obviously no times a good time but right before the wedding almost killed me). They accused him of stealing a gift certificate for glasses (he was a DM for lens crafters, we didn’t need $100 gc for glasses). He couldn’t collect unemployment either because technically he stole even though they couldn’t prove it, and he was denied.  3 weeks later they fired another long term employee for not locking the back door and then 2 weeks after that they shut down one store and combined 2 of them. They just didn’t want to have to lay them off and pay severence so they made up a bunch of stuff about them.

((hugs)) So sorry you two are being put in this situation. It’s definitley a hard one. Just remember to pull together in this time and that things WILL get worked out. Money always comes.. do not let yourself get overwhelmed by the current circumstance and divide you two… you need each other more now than ever! This season WILL pass

I will definitely be praying for you that he can have favor that is on overflow in this season of searching for new work and that the place he gets will cherish his work and heart to be diligent and that he will be better off than where he was! And that you two will be stronger because of it and that nothing that comes against ya’ll will succeed in dividing you!

Don’t let anything you see (list of bills) or don’t see (money) get you overwhelmed… you two CAN work it out!

That is HORRIBLE!  What a terrible ordeal.  I’m so sorry you guys are going through this right now!!!!

That company sounds like a piece of work.  I know it doesn’t feel like it now – but I think you’ll look back on it and hopefully see it as a blessing to be rid of such an unethical place that would treat their employees like that.  DISGUSTING.

Hugs to you and I hope he gets good news both from unemployment and a new job!!

This is so hard, I’m very sorry for you! Also I would suggest continuing to appeal the unemployment. Typically if you apply or appeal 3 times you will get approved for unemployment. Good luck!

Also, edited to say: I work in employment services so we deal with EDD a lot!

I’m so sorry, that really sucks!

Are there any law bees out there? Something about this whole thing of firing people because of fall accusations just seems so illegal and wrong. could anyone weigh in?

I would advise him to file for unemployment and then appeal it to the hearing level if denied. It can’t hurt.

I work in HR and I have tons of employees file for unemployment after being an involuntary termination…some win, some loose….you never know.

They legally cant fire you for having a short register. They have to provide him with an opportunity to pay it back, and a warning etc.. they would only be able to fire him for that if this was a repetitive thing. I think you guys should look into some type of legal action since they have tried to block his chance of getting unemployment. He should still apply ro unemployment anyway and explain the circustances and lack of proof
