Hi, I was discharged from my job as dental assiatant while pregnant on feb.22, 2010. I filed for unemployment the next day. I was never given a reason by my boss the reason why i was being let go. I had no idea my job was at risk. When i tlked to the unemployment claim person she told me it was for constant cell phone usage, bad job performance, and being disrespectful. I couldnt believe it! it was all lies. I dont have a cell phone, My last monthly employee evualtion gave me a 5 for job performance which was the highest, and i have never been written up for any behavioral misconduct. My job gave me a week severance which i had no idea i was recieving will that stop me from getting unemployment? Dont my job have to prove all these accusations? What will unemployment look at? I have already gave my statement to them and im waiting for a decision. I am currently looking everyday for a job as well.
