REASONS FOR DENIAL OF BENEFITS

 

 

1. You were fired for misconduct at work. The employer told you that misconduct was the reason you were fired. The employer is able to show evidence of the misconduct (videotape, witnesses, documentation, or you confessed). Misconduct is not an isolated incident of poor judgment.  Off-duty drug use that does not result in actual or likely on-job impairment is not misconduct.

 

2. You were suspended from work for misconduct connected with work.

 

3. You voluntarily left work without good cause.  

 

4. You did not apply for available, suitable work when refered by the Employment office, and you had no good reason for not applying.

 

5. You did not accept suitable work when offered.

 

6. You were fired or suspended for being absent or late and that was because of illegal drug use (not prescribed drugs). This does not apply if you were in a rehab program at the time, or if you went to rehab within 10 days of being fired or suspended and you can prove that.

 

7. You were fired or suspended for being absent or late because you used alcohol and this was the second time (or more) in a year that it happened. This does not apply if you were in a rehab program at the time, or if you went to rehab within 10 days of being fired or suspended.

 

8. You did not comply with a reasonable written drug testing policy

 

9. You left work, or did not apply for or accept work because the employer instituted a reasonable written drug-testing policy.
