I'm About to be Fired. Now What?

I walked into work today and was suspended with potential termination for policy violations, one of which does include the event that led me to ask this question. Where do I go from here? [more inside]

How to Protect My Employability

A combination of anxiety attack and anemia (the term used by the paramedics was close to that, I don't recall) caused me to pass out in my office. I was discovered unconscious, and came to as the EMT people arrived. I was not scheduled to work that day, but agreed to help the shift supervisor and departing assistant manager, who refused to come into work. The shift supervisor did not react well to the possibility of having to stay in the store to close it. This resulted in a public confrontation after the paramedics left (because I refused further medical treatment; they told me to go home immediately). I ended up closing the store. My store manager, who tried to fire me once already, has informed the District Manger and HR. I was told to come in at my scheduled time, but I can expect to sign papers. What can I expect during a retail-industry termination? [more inside]

Does CA EDD care about my no-income 'job' at my S-Corp?

Terminated from a job in California, applying for unemployment. And I am an officer at a shambling, revenue-free California S-Corp. I have never taken a salary or distributions from it. The company has no employees or contractors. Do I still list the S-Corp on the unemployment application for Q. 33 Unemployment History? [more inside]

Was I fired with cause or not?

I was "let go" from work the other day - I had already been on probation due to a bad review. The review was full of incorrect statements, which I had proof of but I didn't put up a fuss. I was given requirements to fulfill to show improvement. I met those times 3. They let me go anyway. I said that I had gone way farther even than I was asked to in the requirements, so why are you letting me go? The reason was "The decision has been made." I want to know, is this considered with cause, and can I get unemployment? BTW this is in Mass. [more inside]
