not eligible code 1256 not properly notifying employer of absence

by Leona
(Vallejo, Ca. USA)

I was fired after taking a day to go to a scheduled court date. I was not able to request the day off in writing becaause when I was notified of the date the schedule for was already posted. I did speak with the supervisor on duty that day and the two of us tried to find coverage for my shift. That was a Saturday and my court date was the folling Monday. We were not able to find any coverage so my supervisor said that he would notify the supervisor for Monday morning that I would not be in and the reason why. He infact did so, but my employer says that that was not notification. Do you think I will win my appeal?


I have answered this question already.
