EDS In Employment Fight?

We received a call today from a former EDS worker laid off last year from one of the company's New Jersey facilities. She reports receiving a letter the other day from the state's employment commission indicating EDS is contesting her unemployment insurance payments.
We received a call today from a former EDS worker laid off last year from one of the company's New Jersey facilities. She reports receiving a letter the other day from the state's employment commission indicating EDS is contesting her unemployment insurance payments.We wonder if the company is set to take a tougher line with former employees in terms of unemployment insurance claims. EDS has been cutting staff and may be looking to reduce expense charges associated with the restructuring. So far though, no evidence that EDS is going about this systematically.
