Can I collect unemployment if I have been fired?
I had been working at the company for 5 months when one day I was called in and told that they were letting me go. I was within my probation period so they didn't have to give me a reason. This was completely out of the blue. No written warnings, no indications, nothing. Just let go.
As far as I know I was doing what was expected. I was never told otherwise.
File for unemployment. If the employer comes up with a reason between now and when the state requests an explanation, you'll probably find out why when the state tells you what the employer said and ask for a rebuttal from you.
You should not be denied unemployment if the employer did not give you a reason.
