Conduct that is detrimental to an employer's interest constitutes misconduct and will disqualify an employee from eligibility for unemployment insurance benefits. However, while an employee may have been fired for valid reasons, his or her behavior may fall short of misconduct and, therefore, he or she may still be entitled to receive benefits.
