Thanks Guys, after sleeping on it, I've decided to hell with unemployment, I've never asked for or received a penny from any kind of unemployment agency and this will be a good lesson for the boy. I will be chatting with my cop buddies in the near future. very kind of you all to respond

Just so you guys know, the BBB is NOT a govt. agency, they are just a group of self promoters, if a business pays its dues they are in good standing (that's how they get the little plaque to hang in the office). Their logo looks official, and there is a huge public misconception, that this 'agency' has any legal weight.

To the OP, I applaud your sons decision, but like others have said the fight might just cost too much.

The BBB can be pretty useless sometimes.

Definitely talk to your cop buddies. If nothing else, maybe they will execute a search warrant on the premises, or at least persuade the management to allow a drug dog walkthrough...

Many years ago my friend was a bank teller and quit because of drug dealing at the branch by the manager. The main office and the law did not seem to have any interest in looking into it and it became a big headache for her. I would probably tell the cops then forget it.

and as mentioned the BBB is useless.

There is a telemarketing place here in town. If you can't pass a drug test then you get a job there. I wouldn't waste my time, they are probably all the same.

i agree keith, and when ive been inside of it working on a/c stuff the people there look shady as crap. a job with a bunch of snotty nosed college kids crammed in a room together with isnt something i would want to do for a living and your son obviously sees it as well and is better than that. and you obviously set a great moral example for him. on being a good dad.

My son would not do this and things got uneasy at work, and on top of all this, He informed me that this place is a drug infested workplace. It seems as long as the sales are kept going, nobody cares.
Well my son cares and told me he couldn't work there anymore, I supported that decision.
Now the un-employment office turned down his claim, even though there is a section in the code citing moral issues.
I'm proud that my son stood up for his morals,the question is: should I help him pursue this matter, or take our lumps and move on....any thoughts?

Appeal the decision. Not sure how the law works there but in Canada, any unemployment decision is appealable before a board of referees who are independant from the UI people. He'll be given an appeal date and be able to plead his case. Normally quitting a job does not entitle you to benefits but if you have valid reasons for quitting, you can be eligible.

Thanks, yes we can appeal, no we aren't going to. I kinda think it goes against my grain or something to fight for unemployment. Screw 'em we don't need it, and there's probably somebody out there that really does, maybe they'll get theirs.

Well he quite so I don't think that would hold up to well for unemployment. I don't know how much he was making, how old he is, how long he was working there, but it's probably not worth the stress of trying to fight it.

I wouldn't narc on the employees either. I don't know what kind of business it is, but they're just trying to get a paycheck, just like your sonl. It doesn't sound like their bothering you or your son, so why make life harder for them?

I'd buy a 6 pack, some cheese curls and split it with your son over fishing or football or something. Everything comes full circle.

if I were your son, and really cared, i'd write a letter to some random company and talk about the drugs and steeling of sales. I'd probably start with dish network and Att to name a few...

An anonymous muckraker? Nah, that be allowing my son to be drug down to that level. Initially, it ticked us off, not so much now. If there are any good people working there, I don't want to screw them.

HE should appeal the unemployment. It is an insurance that is paid to assist the unemployed while they are looking for a job and everyone is entitled. If your son wins then he has won out over the company and their crappy methods. Also down the road at a job interview your son will be able to explain why he quit, and be able to back up his decision by the fact that the company tried to withhold his unemployment and upon appeal lost due to how they were doing him.
