What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? New Jersey
A friend of mine was terminated from her job for not showing up to work because she was attending the funeral of my aunt. She has been living with me for 2 years and she has been assisting in the aid of my aunt for over a year now. Her boss told her she was allowed to attend the funeral and if possible come to work late. The funeral ran til 130 and than we all had dinner til about 230. Had she gone to work she would hav only worked until 430. She was supposed to call her employer to let them know whether or not she would come to work late that day. She never called. The following day she was terminated and she admitted to her boss that she had a few glasses of wine at the dinner. Unemployment denied her case because her employer mentioned she was drunk and never called. Can she appeal? If yes do you think she will win?
