I recently was let go from from a job, because of restructuring and financial reasons. After parted I asked a ex-coworker to take certain files from my office. The files contain work I had created . I was a Graphic Designer.
I was never told to archive work for my department, so my archiving system was completely my own efforts. The co-worker was fired for stealing.
When I was let go I received benefits for 2 months and 2 months severance.
In my opinion my co-worker did not steal, but she has now been denied unemployment and now wants to appeal. She has requested that I write a letter saying that I asked her to take the stuff, but I am unsure if I should do this. I have yet filed for unemployment, but might need to when my severance runs out if I am not already working by then.
