    What does it mean"you may have been separated for misconduct in connection with job?"

    What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? NJ

    Guessing that it means your former employer is contesting your unemployment claim and they are investigating.

    It appears that the author thinks you may have been fired for misconduct.

    We don't have nearly enough information to form an opinion.

    To start with, who told you this?

    You have not won the law suit lottery; in fact, you haven't even won the law suit scratch-off.

    OP, you haven’t given any information about what may have led up to the firing. Was there an incident or were you talked to about something? What were you told when you were discharged? As others stated, it means they fired you for what they see as misconduct.

    It means the person making the statement isn't sure.

    If you'd care to give us some context, we can advise you whether it matters.
    A person, who is nice to you, but rude to a waiter, is not a nice person. (This is very important. Pay attention. It never fails.)

    Did you file for unemployment, and what was the response? If that was the reply from UI, should should have received a determination with instructions on your appeal rights. Sometimes they will tell you (via phone) what te employer has said happened.
