Unemployment Benefits

See John's entire interview for the Masters of Employment Law series on ReelLawyers.com

In Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia, fired employees can normally collect unemployment benefits from the state where they worked. However, employers often fight these cases because they have to pay into the unemployment benefits systems based on how many of their fired employees have collected benefits. Usually, they fight on the grounds that they fired the employee for “misconduct.” The definition of “misconduct” varies among the three states but generally means the employee broke one of the employer’s rules.
