Will I be denied unemployment benefits?

Asked almost 5 years ago - New York, NY

I was recently terminated from my previous employer, because they are claiming that I was dropping calls, but I was never given any verbal warning nor was I written up? Now the labor dept is reviewing my questionaire to see if I am eligible for benefits?

    Answered . Misconduct is a basis to deny you benefits, however, they should have given you an opportunity to correct the situation. Argue that were you appraised of the deficiencies, you could have tried to correct.
