Can I be fired after given a warning without a new violation?
I was terminated for lying on a employment verification application (my landlord). My boss was upset/disappointed. She decided to give me a fair warning with the promise I should never do it again or I would be terminated. We hugged and made up. She understood as a single parent I was overwhelmed, however, the warning would be my disciplinary. Three days later, She terminated me, she said she spoke to her lawyer/friend and was advised to terminate me. I was with this company for a year. She said I would get unemployment, so I applied. After four weeks of waiting my determination letter stated I was denied because of misconduct and as a Casemanager, my employer expected more from me. WHAT ABOUT THE WARNING? THERE WAS NEVER A VIOLATION OF WARNING OR ANYTHING? CAN SHE JUST CHANGE HER MIND???
Well, yes .. she can. Employment is "at will" .. You can quit .. they can fire you. Good cause is only needed for unemployment benefits.
