It is unlikely that the State will find you eligible for unemployment benefits
if you are terminated for violation of the attendance policy based on the information that you have provided. In order to be eligible for benefits you must either be terminated without cause or quit for "good cause." This circumstance does not fit the requirement since this would be a "cause" termination
. The only way that I can see that you might be able to successfully appeal a denial is if you can establish that the employer was not consistent with their attendance policy. In other words, that other employees who violated the attendance policy in a similar way as you, without a valid reason like FMLA
or a disability, were not terminated. In that case, you could rebut that you violated an existing policy.
