I worked for a law firm for four years. The partnership split up December 2012. Since I have worked for just one of the attorneys. I did not sign any new paperwork with him. He pays me via a hand written check and I do not get a pay stub to show any deductions. If his solo practice ends and I get laid off, what happens if I apply for UI and he hasn't paid into it for me? Can I still get it? Would it skip the last 9 months and go back to when I was employed by the law firm?
