Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
Can you tell me what grounds the employer claims that they fired you under?
Are they claiming misconduct on your part?
Have you appealed the denial?
What is your legal question I can help with tonight?
The thing here is that if you don't agree with the denial, then your only recourse is to file an appeal and fight the denial. There isn't any other option for you if the employer won't voluntarily withdraw their objection.
But not meeting obligations isn't misconduct. It might be poor job performance, but not misconduct. And they can only deny benefits if you are accused of misconduct or you haven't worked for an employer long enough to qualify for benefits.
How long did you work for the employer?
"due to my last employer not being honest with situation." Can you tell me what you mean by this?
What did the employer say? Just that you weren't meeting obligations?
I am trying to figure out what grounds the unemployment office denied you on?
Ok, the we circle back to the fact that your only option to dispute this would be to file an appeal of the denial if you wanted to try to challenge this with unemployment. But I understand that you might not want to do so if it would interfere with any hold that they placed on your benefits.
