You really should engage a local unemployment
law attorney and most all of them do these cases with no money up front for a percentage of the benefits they win for you. However, that said, you would have to present evidence that the conduct they are complaining of was not significant misconduct and that you never received any notice of performance issues. Typically, in these cases if the employer cannot prove your performance issues without actual documentation, then they will not win their case, but you will still have to go through the appeals process and it is up to the employer to produce actual evidence that you committed some job related misconduct and then you would need to present witnesses and evidence of no notice of any performance issues to counter their allegations.
