It's the main reason spot documents every coaching, corrective action, etc because they use it against you if you apply for unemployment benefits.

You'll most likely get something unless you did gross negligence or something of that nature. I know Target and Walmart are not very popular in certain states because of their nature to fight almost EVERY unemployment regardless of the situation.

I did, but I fought it and won. I had a lot of things I wrote down and from what I gave the judge and from what Target gave them the judge sided with me.

You will definitely want to know all of the facts of the reasons which led to your termination. You'll have to talk to your local unemployment office to find out all the details of unemployment, but I would say be prepared for any employer in case they try to contest your unemployment claim.

Yes, Unemployment is a government provided benefit. It's not something Target gives you. Target pays towards Unemployment Insurance (as do you out of your paycheck) You have to file your claim at your local unemployment office.

we don't have a physical office locally, that's what I am saying - it's been closed and gone for years.

I've heard the percentage is pretty low, my last employer tried to deny my claim saying I had excessive absenteeism, unfortunately for them they sent me an email saying I was being let go during the slow season but that they would call me back when the busy season arrived. You have to have proof demonstrating your employer mistreating you or lying or discriminating against you, or witnesses, whatever you can do to win the arguement to get the approval on your unemployment claim

Man my buddy who got fired mid december just got his unemployment granted. This dude had been on finals for attendance for the last couple years and had been given a million chances. Well he called in 3 days in a row during 4th quarter and they said that was the last straw. And the funny thing is the amount he gets is pretty much equal to his spot paychecks. Throw some food stamps into the mix and he'd be living better than most team leaders.
