The answer to your question depends on a number of factors. First, did you have a written employment agreement. Second where you given any formal reviews of job performance. Third, were you ever supplied a writen discription of for your job.
However, from the information you have provided, it appears that the employer is trying to avoid your unempolyment claim and unless he can provide documentation to support his claims you have a good case.

Yes, you can be fired for "not fitting in," (unless "not fitting in" means you are being fired because of your race, sex, age, religion, national origin or disability). It is not at all surprising that employer told GDOL that you did not follow company rules, since they want to avoid paying you unemployment insurance benefits, and that's the best way to avoid having to pay them. It sounds like you should get unemployment benefits, but the company still has the right to separate your employment.
