I was terminated and the H.R. Director said I was not a good fit. In addition, another supervisor had approved a staff to leave early but continued, and 3 weeks prior I was given the task to approve her time sheet. She had continued to leave early and I was unaware that the supervisor had said "one time only". I was terminated and my unemployment denied. I want to appeal. No problem

Hello: This is PhillipsEsq. I am a licensed Attorney and I will be assisting you today.
Could you explain a little more?
What is the reason being given for the denial of your application for unemployment benefits?
Termination because you are not a good fit is not termination because of misconduct and therefore should not result in the denial of your application for benefits.
What is your specific question?

A form stated I worked fr July to Sept that totaled $11,777 and no earnings afterwards. I submitted my W2 which reflected earnings of $24,000 to complete out the 2014 year and I was still denied.
