I doubt it. The Federal government has about 180 laws regarding employment and individual states also have laws. And the laws and court rulings change. Human Resource staff dealing with employment law may have subscriptions to periodicals updating them. You may find books that offer summations or an overview but this is not an area lending itself to simplicity.

It would likely have to be a state law. The federal law's don't offer anything until you have worked for the employer a year.

You can't draw UIF unless you or a deceased spouse paid into the fund. If your employer was required to pay it (and not all are required to do so), your pay check would have a UIF record on it. You were paid in cash and that suggests no record of employment exists. Any suggestion that your employer has done something wrong will likely rule out you working there again. Ideally, you need to work for an employer that pays UIF and that UIF record would be on the paycheck issued by the employer if it is being paid. You probably can learn if your employer was supposed to be paying UIF but that knowledge will not get you UIF. The Department of Labor could tell you. Or this site might:

Paul, your issue is best addressed at the government labor department office - you did not say where you are but you should check with the people at your local labor department as they are probably in charge of your "provident" which I assume is some sort of allowance or stipend.

I would consult an Employment Law Solicitor. Then I would get the correct answer to my question instead of getting an unqualified opinion.

Employment Law | Answered on Jan 22, 2017


The answer to this question is dependent on where the conviction occurred and whether that jurisdiction has restoration of civil rights, including the right to carry a firearm. If the state has restoration available and the person convicted of a felony has had their rights restored, including the right to possess a firearm, then even federal law contains an exception that allows them to possess a gun. If they have not had their rights fully restored, then possessing a firearm may violate the law of the state, and definitely will be a violation of 18 U.S.C. Section 922(g)(1) if the firearm moved in interstate commerce.
