What is the name of your state? Virginia
I was just fired from my job of 1 year, I had missed to many days, I knew it was coming but on my final warning my son was arrested and I missed again, any way, I have filed for unemployment, but i have to speak to a deputy or something because i was fired, does this mean i can't get it? they did tell unless i was fired for gross misconduct, i shouldn't have a problem but I don't want to depend on it if its not comming, any advice? I am looking for work om a different shift right now, but so far nothing

By deputy, I presume they mean an adjudicator in the UC office. As you were terminated for cause, this probably is just standard practice- they will ask you the circumstances of your separation, contact the employer and ask the same thing, and then make a determination whether you are allowed UC benefits under your State's UC reg's.

If they deny you benefits, you can file for a hearing.
