What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? NJ
I was working for a company in NJ for three and a half years when my position was terminated due to lack of work and with no problems I started my unemployment case and began collecting. Sometime about 2 months after I got a job offer in NY and after going through a lot of red tape they decided to hire me and I started commuting to the new job and stopped filing for unemployment. Roughly about a month into the new job(computer programmer), they fired me because they felt that the codes I was submitting were not codes I was writing.
Back to unemployment, opened my old case with plenty of funds in it, and started getting payments till last week when I ran into an issue which my benefits were being denied. To make the long story short, the company that I worked for in NY is claiming misconduct, and apparently from what I was told by the folks at unemployment that could cause loosing my benefits.
I had a hearing by phone where I told my side of the story, they will also hear theirs, and make a decision. Before I run to a lawyer, I was hoping to get some insight from you folks on this and sort of figure out what I am up against.
Thanks before hand.
