If you have been dismissed from his job without just cause (misconduct), you should be eligible for unemployment. The only time an employer can fight and may win, is when they terminated an employee for job related misconduct, and the employee had been previously warned that their job was in jeopardy. We have contested many unemployment issues, and have found that employers who do their homework and follow the law rarely lose, and if they do, these cases were almost always when misconduct was involved.
In the telephone hearings I’ve been involved in, the unemployment representative asks for statements from the employer and the employee regarding the reason the employment was terminated. Their main questions are always “What was the particular incident that resulted in the termination of this employee?” and “Did the employee know that their job was in jeopardy?”
