I filed for unemployment
and I was denied because my employer said I violated company policy but there is no company policy about what I supposedly did. I worked at a nursing facility and I was suspended because of an alledged incident that occured on
my shift which was interanally investigated and investigated by the State and found to be untrue. My boss had called me and said I wasn't to speak to anyone while under investigation but i called my nurse and my boss asked if i called my nurse & i said yes,
then she said this is a serious matter, not to speak to anyone or I could be fired, so after I received that warning I did not speak to anyone. The policy book does not state I can't talk to anyone during investigation it says can't talk to anyone outside
the company. Plus I never received any warnings until after I told my boss I spoke to my nurse then she warned me I could be fired if I did it again and I then said nothing to anyone but they told unemployment I failed to follow a rule. I've worked there for
years without any write ups. I have appealed but what are my chances of getting this approved and what can I do to improve my chances besides hiring a lawyer? In accordance with Section 4141.01(R)(2) of the Ohio Revised Code, the Ohio Department of Job and
Family Services has DISALLOWED the claimant's application for unemployment compensation benefits dated 06/02/2015 due to a disqualifying separation from employment or other reasons described in the following text: The claimant was discharged by ------------------------------------------------------.
on 05/20/2015. The employer discharged the claimant for violating a company rule. Evidence supports negligence or willful disregard of the rule on the part of the claimant. Evidence also allows that violating the rule was in connection with the work, did materially
and substantially affect the employer's interest, and that the rule was reasonable, known and uniformly enforced. Ohio's legal standard that determines if a discharge is with just cause is whether the claimant's acts, omissions, or course of conduct were such
that an ordinary person would find the discharge justifiable. After a review of the facts, this agency finds that the claimant was discharged with just cause under Section 4141.29(D)(2)(a), Ohio Revised Code. Therefore, no benefits will be paid until the claimant
obtains employment subject to an unemployment compensation law, works six weeks, earns wages
of $1422, and is otherwise eligible.
