Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
Whether you can get unemployment depends on whether the unemployment office finds that the reason you were terminated rose to the level of “misconduct.” Miscoduct is conduct that evidences a willful or reckless disregard to the interests of your employer. The intentional falsification of business records could very well rise to the level of misconduct, but if you can argue that it was accidental, or that there was no harm suffered and the falsification did not relate to a matter of significance then yes it is possible to get approved for benefits. Ultimately, though, it’s impossible to say how the unemployment office will rule because each case is judged on its own facts. However, I would say there is certainly a chance here.
