I called the Dept of Labor and they gave me a phone number that they told me may be able to help me reach an unemployment specialist sooner. I did and I was told I am now laid off. It was really easy. I am very relieved. Thanks to all who helped me. I also requested, from Head Start, my employee records. I had no idea I was entitled to them, but anyone is and they have five days to send them to me. It will be interesting to go through the records. I am allowed to challenge anything I feel is wrong and I will. I didn't come this far to give up just because I get unemployment. I truly don't want this to happen to others. Have a great day/night!!!! I am back to normal now. I really wondered if that would ever happen.
