usually you have to prove wrongful dismissal. You will be required to write a letter to show your side of the story. Most times the file will be accepted unless you can not prove that the dismissal was not warranted. Good luck. Deal only with the Unemployment agency and not with the former employer.

You can't seek a lawsuit for that, it won't go anywhere. Almost every state has a no reason firing law, which means that even if they were wrong, they can fire you and there's nothing you can do about it even if you are right. Stop seeking a lawyer, you're wasting your time. You can collect unemployment if you are fired or if you have been laid off from a job. If you'd had quit the job, you would not have been able to collect but since you were fired you can collect. It doesn't matter what the circumstances of you getting fired were, you can still collect the unemployment. Stop freaking out, everything will be OK. Just go to the unemployment office, fill out the paperwork to collect, and look for another job.

I am getting unemployment money after being fired...as long as you been with the company for a while and your poor work performance isn't done on purpose due to laziness or personal problems, if they hired you and you worked for a while and you are performing at the best of your ability and they fire you, especially without warning, you can collect...I am proof

Applying for a job you can specify that you don't want to contact them. Get personal references to use instead of the job. Here's some advice from an online site - Make peace with it before you try to explain it Being fired is emotional. Before your interview, you need to vent your feelings to a trusted confidante so you can explain the situation objectively. Putting the story on paper can also help. "Write out what happened and then go back and take out everything subjective from that draft. After revising it, you'll be at a place where you can simply state the facts of what happened," says O'Donnell. Explain what you learned Turn a negative into a positive by outlining what you gained from the experience. Maybe this happened because you were in the wrong company or position, but in all likelihood, you were at least partly responsible. "You will need to take an honest look at why you were fired and own it - even if you feel it was unjust. Let them know you've learned from your past experiences and are ready to move on with a new outlook - eager to give their company 100 percent of your efforts and make a substantial contribution," says Susan Steinbrecher, CEO of management consulting firm Steinbrecher & Associates. Keep it short and simple It can be tempting to delve into all the details of your firing, but it's just a small part of your past work experience and shouldn't take over your interview. "Talking too much can sound like you are making excuses. Follow the old Dragnet television show motto: 'Just the facts, Ma'am,'" says Hurwitz. If you don't focus too much on your being laid off, the interviewer might not, either.
