I was fired for tardiness.
I suffer from insomnia and have doctors report of treatments. I requested a change in scheduled to resolve issue and was denied.
I'm going to leave it up to someone else to answer the question you asked because that isn't exactly my area of employment law, but what bothers me is that you asked for a change of schedule (a "reasonable accommodation") for your sleep issue, and you were denied and fired. I would go talk to a lawyer about that, to see if you were wrongfully terminated.
Sleep issues and disorders are increasingly being recognized as disabilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and it's possible that employers could be held to be discriminating against employees with these issues if they don't allow you to have reasonable accommodation, such as a shift change, so you could work with your disability. The fact that you've got doctors reports makes your case stronger.
Here's a link to a page about Accommodating employees with sleep disorders which may be helpful to you.
Also, please get good advice about how to go about future job interviews, and how and when to ask for accommodation once you've been hired. Good luck to you!
If my answer was helpful to you, I would appreciate if you would mark it either "helpful" or "best answer" if you feel that applies, as AVVO gives us rating points based on feedback. Thank you! Please note that the above answer is not to be construed as legal advice. It is my personal opinion based on your question, and it was given without obtaining the detailed information that I would normally request in order to render comprehensive legal advice. I advise you to consult with a local attorney of your choosing to obtain specific legal advice. The fact that I answered your question does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and me.
It depends on whether the service center or Referee determined it was a fault or a non-fault overpayment. If it is a non-fault overpayment you are not required to pay any money back unless you collect unemployment benefits within the next three years. If it is a fault overpayment, UC will be looking to be paid back now.
