Can I collect unemployment if I have been fired for making mistakes.

they said I made too many mistakes and they could not afford that...therefore they had to let me go. I have been working there for 3 years and in those years i have only accumulated 3 mistakes. I had seniority there and was not the only one making mistakes... I was working in shipping/recieving with 2 other guys who made endless mistakes. I filed for unemployment and they denied it to me... My previous employer stated I had a poor attitude and was making too many mistakes... We got new management that fired my Uncle some time ago and has been letting the people who had any affiliations with him go as well... I don't know how to prove this or even how to write an appeal letter... Could you please help me...


Hi Mark,

To write your appeal read this page this page at EDD's website. Down at the bottom there's a link to the form you need to fill out to appeal. Just above that, there are links to California's UI code, Precedent decisions and the eligibility guide. Don't worry so much about the appeal letter. It can be as simple as saying I wish to appeal because I disagree with the determination. I was not let go for misconduct, but for making a mistake. Then you can concentrate on getting together any documents that might help you prove something.

But do read this first. I suggest you read sections MC 5, 45, 300 and 310 in the eligibility guide on this page and then if you have any more questions, let me know.
