Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
This is a very minor incident and based on the facts you have described there is still a strong possibility that you will get approved for benefits, typically speaking. You have cited the most important points in your question--that you were not previously warned, have no history of discipline or similar incidents, and your conduct did not injure the employer. Those are the most important things that the unemployment office typically looks at when evaluated whether the disqualify on grounds of misconduct. You simply want to emphasize these things, as well as the fact that you did not believe you were doing anything wrong. The chances of getting approved for benefits should be very good.
I hope that you find this information helpful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further.
I just wanted to followup with you to make sure that you did not have any further questions or concerns. For some unknown reason, the experts are not always getting replies or ratings (which is how we get credit for our work) that the customer thinks have gone through. In your case I have not yet received either. If you are having technical difficulties with reading, replying or rating, please let me know so that I can inform the site administrator.
In any event, it was a pleasure assisting you and I would be glad to attempt to assist you further on this issue, or a new legal issue, if needed.
Very best wishes.
