  •  Is your SIL going to collect Unemployment? (13+ / 0-)

    I hope he is, but if they are contesting then why won't you name the company. Put it out there. Do as much damage to them as possible.

    You know he could also talk to his good clients. He should ask them if they have or know of any opportunities. This serves three purposes:

    #1 The good former client might have an opportunity open. Also keeps open the lines of communication and lets your SIL tell his side so that he maintain the relationship with the former client.

    #2 The good former client may consent to giving you a reference (always better to get a reference from a former client than your former company - have to worry too much what former company might say).

    #3 You might be able to apply pressure to the old employer by way of the client. Now when this happens, there is a good chance that your former employer is going to bad mouth your son-in-law. If the relationship with the former client is strong, then they are going to tell you what the former employer is saying with regards to your SIL and he can act accordingly (i.e. suing the former employer for defamation if appropriate).

    best of luck to your sil.
