being denied leave of absence for an ill out of town family member.
I was denied a request of an emergency leave of absence to take care of an ill family member for 2 week that lived in another state. I was told I could leave that day, they would pay me for the next two days. They did not want me back in the office letting others know they were making me choose between my ill sister and the job.I explained in our meeting, I was not resigning or quitting, but I must go take care of my sister. Upon returning home, a transfer of health insurance paper from COBRA were in my mail which stated, "upon your termination of employment with ???". Therefore I filed for unemployment. I was denied benefits because: THE DISCHARGE WAS FOR MISCONDUCT CONNECTED WITH THE WORK. I want to file an appeal, what should I do? Thank you for any help.
This is better, but I still need to know what state and how many people the employer employs.
