My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: Az
i was terminated from my employer after being accused of doing something i didn't do (HR took the lead and had me terminated). I went to an attorney and she suggested i apply for unemployment benefits to "flush out any info they have on you." She said they will fight it b ecause technically i am not eligable. I applied back in November. well i finally recieved a response back from Unemployment and this is what it says:
You are eligible for unemployment insurance
Discharged from employment, A.R.S 23-775.2, A.A.C. R6-3-51485.A
You were discharged for an alleged violation of a company rule. you have denied the violation, and your employer has not provided evidence to overcome your denial. A disregard of the employer's interests has not been established.
What does this mean? i mean i know that they approved me for unemployment but what does the rest mean? I am in the process of a defamation suit due to them telling potential employers the reason they terminated me (the accusation that is did something that i proved i didn't do). I have had job offered rescinded once they spoke to my previous employer and essentially have been kicked out of the industry i work
