Re: Unemployment

SS84 - You cannot be denied benefits unless you were terminated for misconduct. It's not that "misconduct" occurred in your employment history. Rather, the misconduct which caused your termination is the only conduct which can be considered by the VEC. Further, on appeal, it is the employer who bears the burden of showing that misconduct. It's true that the term "misconduct" will be broadly interpreted, but they can't make sh** up and they can't rely on conduct that wasn't the basis for your firing.

Did you appeal? Some employers will simply assert the firing was for misconduct in an attempt to avoid the hit on their unemployment insurance costs but give it up as soon as an appeal is filed.

Not necessarily. Sounds like she was still in the probational period...which usually lasts about six to nine months I think. So, in that length of time, a company can fire you without going through a three strikes procedure.

I'd listen to the lawyer on this one.

Great advice and a good analysis. To answer your question, I did not file the appeal because 2 days after losing my job, I was employed again at the company that I had 2 interviews with already. Long story short when we knew we were facing the layoffs, i got ready by putting out lots of applications and by the time I finally lost my job a few months later, i had another one lined right up.

Re: Unemployment

In a stunning victory for people who feel their dingus boss undermines them at every opportunity, I would like to announce that my daily nightmare, aka dingus, has left the building. Dingus first joined the company I work for back in late July of aught-12. He then immediately went to work making the lives of myself and my 4 coworkers in my department miserable. For over 6 months he made each of us feel miserable before we set foot in the door every day. That is a personal accomplishment of his that shouldn't be overlooked. Today we salute you, overbearing, micromanaging, supremely hated managers of the world. This bud's for you. Even bad lessons in life are still lessons learned, and for that we thank you. Salutations, and goodnight.

Re: Unemployment

I just got a new job today! It's not the administrative job I had hoped for, it's a retail position. I'm getting paid less than I used to be, but it's a job and I'm thankful for that. Can't be too choosy when you're dead broke and unemployed. There's always the chance that I could move up to a team lead postion, then management and even squeeze my way into a corporate position. Who knows. Hopefully better things lie in the future.
