I was granted benefits.i was surprised .why wont they mention the theft as reason for my discharge?
There could be many reasons as to why your benefits were not denied -- including the fact that your former employer doesn't want to harm your chances at future employment or it may be that your former employer could not conclusively prove that you told from the company.
In any event, Maryland is an at will employment state which means you can be terminated for any reason or no reason at all so long as you are not a member of a protected class and the termination was not based on discrimination.
