Yeah the unemployment office called my work to verify that I was furloughed in April. Did they call back every week to make sure I hadn’t been offered a job? I doubt it. I had to log in each week I was unemployed and answer questions before I got paid. But we had a guy in my department that refused the job a month ago but started back today. I’m guessing he wanted that extra month of government checks.
That's how it's here as well. We provide a letter showing the employee was furloughed (saying laid off is seen differently). When we are ready for them to return, LWC is sent a copy of the letter informing the employee it's time to return. If they refused, it's seen as a resignation.
We've only terminated one person throughout all of this and the person isn't likely to qualify since we're claiming it was for misconduct and have evidence of it.
