Can I collect unemployment?

Asked about 1 year ago - Brooklyn, NY

I ran an office sports pool at the office which I have done for the past few years. This was permitted by all company managers. I ran three Super Bowl box pools but could not fill all the boxes so I bought the empty ones. I could not pay some of the winners and was fired when they complained. This is in NY.
