Fired In Texas For Misconduct And Denied Again At My TX Unemployment Appeal Phone Hearing
(Texas Unemployment Benefits - Fired)
I work for a loan cash company, I took a payment from a customer without her/my supervisors approval.
I'm not the only one whose done this but the only one whose been fired for doing it. I have never done anything like this before but that day I had a lot on my mind and before I knew it I took it and didn't pay attention to what I did.
I have applied for benefits and was denied I had my first appeal and it was denied. Should I try an appeal again? And can I work elsewhere and still keep fighting second appeal?
Of course you can keep fighting an with appeal if you find other employment .. you just don't file for anymore weeks of benefits once you become employed .. but there's always the back pay to keep fighting for.
I have questions and I'll place what you wrote in "" so you know why I'm asking.
"I took a payment from a customer without her/my supervisors approval."
Question: Was the customer also an employee of the loan cash company?
"I'm not the only one whose done this but the only one whose been fired for doing it."
What is the precise rule that you violated? Did you just testify to the fact that the employer does not uniformly enforce this policy .. or did you provide proof .. such as a witness .. maybe a current or former employee that would corroborate the fact that they had indeed violated the same rule with the employer's knowledge and that nothing was done?
"I have never done anything like this before but that day I had a lot on my mind and before I knew it I took it and didn't pay attention to what I did."
Really Mary? This was your argument to rebut why what you did shouldn't be seen as misconduct in connection with your violation of a known employer rule?
When your mind is on other things, than what it is you're being paid to do .. that might result in some innocent type isolated mistakes while performing your job even to the best of your ability ..
Forgive me, but .. "before you knew it you took it and didn't pay attention to what it is you did" ..
That is what I call neglectful because you knew it was a rule to get permission from supervision to perform the transaction and you didn't even try to do that .. regardless of what was on your mind.
