Fired for "Good Cause"
by D. Garcia
I got fired for cause. I have worked there for almost 5 years and was only written up once for a mistake NOT for a behavioral issue. The owner and president of the company has written numerous times that I am an exemplary employee and my personel file is two inches thick with commendations.
I was fired about one hour after sending an email concerning harassment. Now the company say's they have statements from employee's that I was causing a disruption by a negative reaction to a new policy. I have never been counseled or written up for any bad behavior. Does this mean I will not get unemployment?
Do you happen to have a copy of that email you sent?
What was the new policy? Were you causing a disruption?
I think it's great you have two inches of wonderful things about you in your personnel file, but "the incident" you need to concern yourself with now is the one that got you fired. I don't feel like you've given enough information for me to do anything but speculate. Specifics please.
Read the stuff under MC45 and MC255 if you have more questions come on back and post a comment to this page.
The employer only decides whether there was good cause to fire you, they do not decide (although they need to prove) if it was good enough for the STATE to deny unemployment benefits. The state decides.
