My former employer fired me for no just reason except they lost a big insurance contract and gave my job to the insurance biller since her position had been phased out. After I filed for unemployment insurance, they told the Unemployment people I did not "perform to their satisfaction". They have fired 23 people since January and all have been blocked from unemployment because the employer is determined to keep their unemployment insurance payments down and fights each and every fired employee's attempts to claim unemployment. How can I fight this? The unemployment office sides with the employer nearly every time in this state, according to the attorney's I've talked with. It's simply not a matter of misconduct, how can the unemployment office get away with siding with this rotten employer despite their own manual's description of misconduct? They even rejected my appeal and sided with the employer.

      I was about to answer your OTHER thread until you posted this one. Now my only response to you is, either delete one thread and then in the other Follow the rules of this forum, or go without an answer to BOTH threads.
