A friend was fired recently from her job after submitting an FMLA. The employer claimed they could not certify her FMLA and fired her within a few hours of her submitting the FMLA. She was not drawing FMLA leave and the company is the one who told her she had to fill out the FMLA. Her unemployment benefits were denied and they are calling it misconduct as the reason. She has an appeal hearing next week. What does she need to prove for the appeal? What should her main arguments/point be?
What does the determination state is the reason for the misconduct?
And by the way, you did not include the name of the state and that is required.
