I quit my job due to illegal activity. My employer was being investigated by the PA State Inspector General’s Office for falsifying invoices to the state. I have an email thread from the investigator asking me questions about the fake invoices. My employer had me type them for her. I was interviewed by the Inspector General’s Office a couple of days after I quit. I have an unemployment hearing at the end of the week. Will I receive unemployment if I have proof of illegal and unethical activities of my employer?
