Can I Get Unemployment If I Have Been Fired?


Can I get unemployment if I have been fired?

This is a good question if you want to know how unemployment insurance benefits works, because getting benefits is all about the devil in unique details of your discharge, termination, or more to the point, why you got fired.

The unemployment claims investigator wants specific and relevant details about the final incident that led to the decision to terminate employment.  What they don't want is information that won'd help them to determine whether they think you're guilty of it.   

Usually, at a deadline for fact gathering, they wil issue their initial determination of benefits for a discharge, just like they would had the issue of UI law been a voluntary quit with good cause.

 This is an initial determination of benefits based upon the available information provided by you and the employer at a time deadline for responses.

If you're in a hurry and don't need to know about appealing a denial of benefits for misconduct, here's some discussions about getting fired.

Q&As: : Can I get unemployment if I have been fired? 

And here's a well known definition of misconduct as it relates to employment and unemployment benefits.

When You Think the Unemployment Department Is Wrong to Deny Benefits

Whether you're initially allowed or denied unemployment benefits, a country-wide fact about UI is,  both you and the employer have the right to appeal an initial determination of benefits. 

Once an appeal is filed a first level hearing, often referred to as a tribunal, is scheduled.    

At the hearing the burden of proof still belongs to the employer because they were the moving party.   Although the initial determination may of  found you guilty of misconduct .. the determination may of been based upon insufficient, or incomplete available information.

Once at a first level appeal hearing the employer is required to sustain this burden to show not just cause, but GOOD cause.

This happens through testimony and/or evidence and the goal is to show you were in fact guilty of work misconduct.  

A first level unemployment appeal hearing is sometimes referred to as the FULL fact finder. 

The decision from a full fact finder is based upon everything brought to light in your unique circumstances that may matter to arguing the cause for the discharge was misconduct, or for you the claimant of benefits .. not rising to a state's definition of misconduct .. nor that of a similar reasonable person.  

The first level  hearing is your last chance to set the facts straight and show the employer's cause, or reasoning  for discharge doesn't meet the laws standards to prove your guilt.

  • General violations  of a known rule or policy
  • Poor Job Performance
  • Neglect of Job Duties
  • Unacceptable attendance 
  • Excessive Tardiness
  • Theft of Time
  • Removal of, or Unauthorized Use of Company Property
  • Insubordination
  • Inappropriate Conduct in the Workplace
  • Quitting in lieu of being fired    (Yes, a discharge, not a quit because you were given no option to remain employed).

I hope you understand the issue of misconduct is an arguable issue once at an unemployment hearing, but that it's best you argue to the law why your action(s) did not rise to a level recognized by law .. as misconduct.

Here's those questions and answers about getting fired again.
