I was disqualified for unemployment because they felt like it was not a good cause. I left my job due to my daughter being ill.
Mr. Love is right - unfortunately, you cannot receive unemployment benefits when you quit due to a family member's illness. I hope your daughter gets better.See question
I left my job with out giving a previous notice, and started working in a new company. My employer never gave me my last paycheck. It's been a few weeks and I still haven't received anything from them. What should I do?
Mr. Jackson is right - definitely reach out to the Department of Labor and they should be able to help you. Good luck!See question
I have an employee that I would like to fire over the phone since I see no reason for her to return to the office just to get fired. If I did that would that be a viable reason to collect unemployment?
Mr. Love is right. It doesn't matter if you terminate the employee over the phone, through email or in-person. What matters is the reason the employee is terminated. Even when an employee is terminated, they are entitled to unemployment unless the employer can prove that they were terminated for misconduct connected with their work.See question
Now Two years later they say I shouldn't be working there
Yes, you can be fired based on your criminal record, even if your employer was aware of it at that time of hire. With that being said, it's possible that you may be eligible to receive unemployment benefits under these circumstances.See question
Also would pro bono be available, or are there any cheap lawyers around?
Discrimination cases can be very complex and hard to prove. You will probably not be able to find an attorney to assist you in the case pro bono, but you may be able to find one that would be willing to do it on a contingency basis (they don't get paid unless you do). That will depend largely on the strength of your case and your likelihood of success. Also, keep in mind that the old saying, "you get what you pay for" often rings true.See question

I agree with the other attorneys. You should definitely consult with an education law attorney about a possible FMLA and/or ADA claim. An attorney needs to get more facts of what happened before being able to determine whether or not you have any actionable claims. Also, go forward with your claim for unemployment benefits. If you are denied, be sure to appeal to have an appeals hearing scheduled. If that happens, you should also consult with an employment law attorney familiar with these hearings to help you get your benefits.
Good luck.See question

Mr. Rothrock is right. In NC you can be terminated for any reason or no reason at all. The exceptions are if you were terminated based on your protected class and/or protected activity. Requesting to leave early because of bad weather is not a protected activity. If that was the sole reason you were terminated, you would not have a claim. As Mr. Rothrock stated, you may be eligible for unemployment benefits, so you should file right away.See question
