My previous employer released me from work. The reason he gave me was that work was slow and rather than just keep me on the pay role waiting at home for his phone call to go to work they found it better just to let me go. I filed for unemployment and received a letter from the unemployment office denying my claim because I was terminated for misconduct connected with work. So I guess my question is, Is there anything I can do because he told me one thing about letting me go and as soon as I go to collect unemployment until I find another job he changes his story to keep from having to pay the unemployment.Ok I have filed for the appeal. Now my question is... How should I respond to their questions ? I know to answer them honestly and plan to do so as I know I did nothing wrong and had no control of the company truck over heating. The truck I was driving that morning for the reason he says he "fired" me had been in and out of the shop for months on in before it blew the engine. There are three other employees there that also know what happend and what he is doing and say they will back me up because from the time the truck blew its motor to the time he let me go was well over a month. And thank you to those that have responded to my questions as this is the first time I have ever had to try and collect unemployment.
