I worked for a job for 2 years. I was fired for sexual harrasment. My boss told me he would deny my benefits. Then I got a seasonal job and Then was laid off for lack of work. My new boss said yes he would allow my benefits. Can i still file
By all means, you should file for benefits based on the facts you provide. My initial thought, you have nothing to lose; second, your former employer may not even bother opposing you in your quest for benefits; third, your former employer's presentation of evidence may lack sufficiency for EDD and lastly, decisions made by the EDD are speculative.
If you are forced to appeal, by all means retain an attorney to represent you. Your reputation should be protected as much as possible.

Miller, A Professional Corporation, nor any of its attorneys.or staff. A relationship regarding you and the Law Offices Of Scott A.

It depends on whether you put in enough time in the second job to qualify it as the last employer. If yes, you should be qualified for benefits. If no, likely not.
Apply and see what happens. It costs nothing other than your time.
Good luck to you.
