A: Okay, correct me if my recitation of facts is incorrect: you worked for a realtor? You quit, a few months ago? They are "coming after you," for something? And, they are using facts from your personal life to "come after you?" If these facts are correct, then this is my advice:

Idaho is an "at will" state. This means, that you can quit, for any reason, or no reason, anytime. The employer can also fire you for any "unstated" reason, anytime. So, the only way I can think of that the employer can "come after" you, is if you apply for "unemployment compensation." and the former employer wants to prove that the termination was due to some fault of yours. Because, in order to receive unemployment compensation in Idaho, you must allege either that (1) you quit for no reason or fault; or (2) you quit and there was fault, but the fault was not yours. This is typically, why an employer would "come after" you. Otherwise, I have no idea how you would find out, short of being served a Summons and Complaint for allegedly doing something while you were working?
