Customer Question

I was summarily fired on June 20. The stated reason was insubordination. I don't think I was insubordinate. The employee handbook says that insubordination says that an employee may be disciplined, but does not state that a single offense will get you fired.
JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Massachusetts
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: I've filed for unemployment - that's all.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: The company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of a Japanese corporation, not a public entity.
