Hello Sabrina, my name is ***** ***** I'll answer your questions. First, let me say that I'm sorry to hear that you have this problem.1. Yes, you can be terminated for being late, even though other employees are not being terminated for the same thing. Arizona is an "employment at will
" state. That means that you can be terminated for any reason or for no reason or for a bad reason. The one exception is that you cannot be discriminated against because of sex, race, religion, or national origin. If any of these reasons is involved, its a different story, and please reply with the information and I will talk about it.2. The unemployment insurance
issue: your employer responded to the UI agency by saying that you were terminated for misconduct
. This is the law, you cannot draw unemployment after losing your job because of misconduct. I would suggest, however, that you file an appeal anyways. Sometimes the employer doesn't bother to respond and then you will get your benefit.3. If you were on direct deposit and your account got closed, they will have to pay you by another means. But, if you wait for your bank to bounce the payment back to their bank, that may take a while. Easier to get them the letter they asked for and get your paycheck.I'm sorry that I couldn't give you better news, but I figure you want to hear it like it is.If I have adequately answered your questions, please rate the answer below. If you have more to the question, send a reply. Good luck.
