I was denied unemployment benefits. Do I still have a claim for wrongful termination?
The denial of unemployment benefits does not usually end your wrongful termination claim. Likewise, the granting of unemployment benefits does not mean that you were wrongfully terminated. However it is important that before you have conversations with unemployment you see an employment lawyer first to advise you on how to handle the unemployment claim. The statements made by you in an unemployment claim can be used against you in your wrongful termination claim.
