Good evening! I'm sorry to hear about the situation!

Poor performance isn't typically a basis to deny unemployment benefits when an employee is performing as well as he/she can.
However, if an employee is ignoring the employer's coachings, failing to make the effort, etc., that would be a basis to deny benefits.
That said, inability to perform isn't abasis to deny benefits.
