I am a salaried supervisor for 4 years with the company in question. I desperately want to get termed and collect unemployment. The problem is I am too valuable, well respected, and despite my attempts too good at what I do to actually succeed.
Is there any specific circumstances that allow unemployment for “lapse of judgment”? Furthermore if an accusation is made (in general- regarding conversations about this ect) is it the responsibility of the ex employee or the company to prove it?
I can honestly say you are the first person to ever ask a question here that has pissed me off.
The burden of proof always lies with the “moving party”.
I have intentional tried to avoid having to answer a question like yours, like the plague Questions asking how to get fired and get unemployment. And look who’s asking .. a supervisor so valuable they can’t manage to get their self fired on purpose.
It’s such a premeditated thing to do.
I think it’s lousy when employers plan a termination with the intention of proving misconduct or act in a way that causes someone to quit out of desperation and I don’t feel any differently about employees who try to manipulate their situation either just so they can get unemployment.
It’s a cheap shot .. considering how many people are out of work and unable to collect unemployment because they were fired for being sick or because their kids were sick or because the employer (supervisor) had an unpublic mandate to reduce cost by getting rid of people by firing them for cause.
Planning an inadvertent “lapse in judgment” is the epitome of willful, intentional and knowing misconduct.
Why don’t you figure out what your good cause is for quitting your job if you’re willing to go to such devious lengths and take your chances just like most other people.
