It sounds like enough to me but I am not in Georgia. That being said, I would want to know how long you had the job, whether there was any written contract, whether or not there were written rules regarding time off, absences, illnesses, personal days. There may be other factors involved in your firing that contributed to the decision by your boss. Keep in mind that unemployment compensation claims look back at past employment and former employers might have to contribute to your compensation. If you ever collected before or made a claim before, should be disclosed. You should get legal advice from an employment lawyer in your area.
This answer is not intended to be legal advice in a lawyer/client relationship. Misunderstanding of the answer or use of the answer for any illegal purpose is not the responsibility of the writer. The answer to any question in the Avvo website is constrained by the limited content of the question, an incomplete description of the facts underlying the question or a wrongful motivation for the question.
You should probably appeal. Assuming there are no other events that factored into your termination, it doesn't sound like there will be enough evidence to support the employer's justification for terminating you. It also sounds like you will be able to rebut any evidence that is presented. Also, while not required, you may want to retain the services of a lawyer to guide you through the process and to represent you at the hearing.
