Is there a difference between disciplinary versus non-disciplinary termination when applying for unemployment?
I worked for my company and requested workplace accommodations. The employer denied them all and put me on paid leave to apply for other positions. I was interviewed but did not receive any job offers.
Later they offered me a small severance and asked that I sign a release of claims form if I resign. I declined and applied for unemployment since I was fired. My concern is that my former company has told the unemployment office that I was fired for performance, but all of my correspondence says non-disciplinary separation, incapacity. Will I be allowed to collect unemployment? How should I proceed when the company has already lied to the unemployment office about my termination?
