Can I collect unemployment if I have been fired for being late to work twice (both times under five minutes of start time)?
I recently changed departments at my job. (I worked there a year before I changed departments) I was told that in the first 60 days of my new start date in the department that any absence or tardies were subject to termination. I called off one day due to severe illness and was late another day by literally two minutes. They have since told me that if I am absent or tardy again (even by a minute) to work or returning from a break I will be fired. Is there any chance I can qualify for unemployment if this happens?
The bank that I work for was also recently bought out and it is still in question whether we will even have jobs in the next few months. I feel that this crack down is their way of muscling people out. If I'm fired I will lose my vacation days I have earned. The only way I can get those is if I quit. If I did quit would I qualify for unemployment?
What't the policy? Three occurrences?
If you quit in anticipation of a discharge you will not get unemployment?
