  1. Generally, yes!
    Unless you were fired "for cause" what is known as 402(e) employee misconduct...

  2. If you get laid off, you can collect. However, these facts are more complex. Many employers have policies that say supervisors and employees can't date. If they did have one, they may have an argument that she committed willful misconduct. It appears like she was warned and moved because of the relationship . . . not sure what you meant by "didn't work out" -- if they continued to take their personal relationship into the workplace, thay may be found to have committed willful misconduct, and she could be denied unemployment.
