Q) I was fired from my job, but the reason the employer gave me I did not do. Can I file unemployment?
A) If you were fired from your job and the reason your employer gave you is not true or you believe it to be unfair, you may still be eligible for unemployment benefits. However, it will depend on the specific circumstances of your case and the laws in your state.
In general, to be eligible for unemployment benefits, you must have lost your job through no fault of your own. This means that if you were fired for misconduct or a violation of company policy, you may be disqualified from receiving benefits. However, if you were fired for reasons outside of your control, such as a company restructuring or downsizing, you may be eligible for benefits.
If you were fired for reasons that you believe to be unfair or untrue, you may be able to appeal the decision and provide evidence to support your case. This could include statements from co-workers or evidence of your job performance or conduct. You should contact your state’s unemployment insurance program for guidance on the appeals process and how to provide evidence to support your claim.
In summary, if you were fired from your job and believe the reason given by your employer is unfair or untrue, you may still be eligible for unemployment benefits. However, it will depend on the specific circumstances of your case and the laws in your state. You should contact your state’s unemployment insurance program for guidance on your eligibility and how to appeal a denial of benefits.
State law determines whether a fired employee can collect unemployment. Generally speaking, an employee who is fired for serious misconduct is ineligible for benefits, either entirely or for a certain period of time (often called a “disqualification period”). But the definition of misconduct varies from state to state.
To collect unemployment benefits, you must be out of work through no fault of your own.
An employee who is fired for being a poor fit for the job, lacking the necessary skills for the position, or failing to perform up to expected standards will likely be able to collect unemployment. But an employee who acts intentionally or recklessly against the employer’s interests will likely be ineligible for unemployment benefits. http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/unemployment-benefits-when-fired-32449.html
