Carlin & Buchsbaum, are employment laywers and are suppose to be in the business of representing clients who are victims to wrongful termination, and unlawful employment issues.  

I worked for Carlin & Buchsbaum for approximately 5 weeks and was wrongfully termination by them without cause, without notice and without any warning.  It wasn't enough that they wrongfully terminated my employment, but Gary Carlin filed a fraudulent claim with the State of California's EDD Department of Unemployment and made false reports, untrue statements for the sole purpose of blocking my unemployment compensation.

Mr. Carlin also did not know the laws concerning the EDD Department's practice of employee reporting, because while employed, they sent him a notice regarding a claim that I made prior to being employed and he accused me of trying to claim unemployment while working with his firm.  The EDD explained to me that it was their normal procedure to send a notice to the NEW employer to receive their verification that you are in fact employed by them, and based on their confirmation, they will close the claim.  Mr. Carlin did not now the laws concerning EDD and they are employment lawyers.

Never in my 30 years in the legal profession have I ran into attorneys that were so desperate to "protect their reserves" that they would stoop to such viciousness to try to block an employees right to unemployment compensation to hold them over until they are gainfully employed.

Carlin & Buchsbaum's actions were malicious, fraudulent, unethical and they lied to the State of California's EDD Department without any hesitation.  How can they represent clients against employer violations when they themself are guilty of the same violations that they are in business to protect.

Lying to the EDD is WRONG

AUTHOR: ghughes - ()

You are right and I know the law regarding at-will termination.  Unfortunately, this complaint is about what they did after terminating me.  They lied to the EDD about my work performance, about being warned 3 times and about incidents that were untrue just to protect their reserve.  In case you don't know EDD is part of the State of California which is the same government agency that governs their license.  So they actually committed a fraud against the government agency.  But the EDD did not buy their lie because they did approve my unemployment claim without having to appeal.

It's interesting that this wrongful termination claim is against an employment law firm. You would think they should know the law when firing someone!

Altough I do not know the case details, one thing is clear: California is an at-will employment state.

Employees in the USA are divided into two classes:

  1. at-will employees
  2. just-cause employees

An at-will employee in the USA can be terminated at any time, and for any reason – or no reason at all – and the courts will generally not intervene to protect the ex-employee from allegedly unfair treatment by the employer.

Just cause employees can be dismissed from employment only for a good reason, such as poor job performance by the employee.

Unfortunatly, Mr. Annynmous Poster , if this post is really true then as you can see you could be fired for no cause in California and this firm did not have to provide you any reason for firing you.  You are smart not to post your name here, because now you are damaging this firms reputation by leaving nehative reviews about them, while they have stayed within the applicable laws and have done nothing wrong.
