Customer Question
I was denied unemployment...

I was denied unemployment for the most generic reasoning of refusing to obey instructions. I do not agree, and it's so vague i dont know how to dispute that for the appeal

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you documented this or discussed it with HR?

Nobody from HR contacted me about disobeying instructions, and there was not an HR department really

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

It was a full time sales position at a car dealership

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I was the lead salesman 11 out of last 12 months and I had been denied bonuses and commissions. Upon bringing up my complaints with my manager, he became irrational and made a decision to deny my request, then i was fired within the same day!
