I appealed my UIC denial of unemployment benefits & during the appeal hearing, my former supervisor committed multiple incidents of perjury. He provided UIC with a document listing the "incidents" which led to my termination. When this document was entered as an exhibit, he testified that each incident was true. During questioning by the employer's & my attorney regarding the specific documentations, he again testified the "incidents" were true. The incidents in question were: I failed to respond to a specific email, the other was an email I supposedly sent of which he was shown that was the final incident to cause my termination. Unbeknownst to him, I had physical evidence contradicting her testimony. I had the email he said he sent as well as my response! 2nd: the email he "quoted" as the final incident was from a message sent AFTER TERMINATION & I still had the entire conversation in my account! The Appeal was in my favor & I am now receiving unemployment benefits. However, my employer and supervisor violated their licensing ethics and employer policies.
You presumably asked your attorney's advise on this question and did not like what was probably said: you won; leave it be.
