I believe I have a tort claim or personal injury claim and need confirmation. My employer committed three counts of intentional perjury during my unemployment appeals hearing out of ill will which resulted in receiving the favorable judgment and my benefits were denied. The reason for the denial was that the stories were too conflicting with one another. Due to the three counts of lying to the unemployment judge, the stories were too conflicting so the unemployment judge didn't know who was telling the truth or not and I was not approved benefits. I have solid proof, evidence and Witnesses that can attest that I was telling the truth in my employer was lying. If I can prove it with solid evidence do I have any kind of claim? Tort claim?, personal injury claim? They are indeed liable for by loss of benefits for not being honest. The adverse action was me losing my unemployment money.. please help
Surely all the solid proof was used when it was most valuable and was not convincing. No there is not an independent claim
Because the statements made before the administrative board are privileged under California law, you do not have a suit against your employer. This privilege is called the Litigation Privilege.
