Somethong does not make sense here:
IF your claim for benefits was proper, and
IF you stopped claiming benefits on the demand of your employer,
then why would you be in trouble now with EDD?
EDD doesn't care at all if persons eligible for benefits stop claiming or decline to claim.
So, if you are trouble with EDD, what's the story?
My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must not be relied upon as legal advice. I give legal advice only in the course of an attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by individual consultation and execution of a written agreement for legal services.
