What is the name of your state? VA
I was fired from my previous employer for "performance issues in my probation notice". I worked with this company for over 5 years. The last two years have been hell because my "new" manager and I just clashed. She had it out for me. I have been trying to complete my college degree so I couldnt quit and pay them back for the education. So I just stuck it out until they fired me.
For my student loans to complete my degree, I have to apply to the VA Employment commission. I just recieved a letter saying I have to attend a phone fact-finding interview with my previous employer and a Deputy of VEC. This is in regard to the question... "Does the reason I am currently unemployed qualify me to recieve unemployment benefits".
It says I have the right to legal representation and to provide witnesses?
What the heck is this and should I expect a confrontation from my employer? What should I be prepared to hear and say?
Thanks so much for any advice. The more the better.
