Angry Unemployed Canadian (TN-1) refused in California

I'm wondering if anyone might have any ideas.

My former employer stopped paying me with checks that included deductions in April. When I questioned this, I was told "it was to save money." I wasn't paid on June 1. I went to a meeting on June 4, where the owners told me that everything I had received since April was a loan, and that I had to sign over the collateral in my home before they would give me my paycheck! I reported them to the IRS & Payroll Tax Fraud.

I called a lawyer that evening, and resigned the next day. I took them to court and won, allowing me to freeze the awarded assets until the final trial.

I was told by a lawyer friend that I could apply for unemployment benefits. I did, and was at first told I qualified. I just received a letter stating that I was turned down.

Anyone have any experience with this type of problem?

What options do I have?

As long as you are physically in the US you cannot claim UI. You must
be resident in Canada and make an interstate claim.

INS and the State said the same thing. End of story.
