Has thus person actually received any funds from the state? If he was terminated on the 6th and has already received a benefit payment, that would have to be some kind of record. The employer, no matter how big or small, has been paying a UI tax on each employee's compensation from the point of hire. It is not something for which they are suddenly liable upon termination. The state collects these funds and pools them to service all their approved claimants.

In other words, the employer doesn't get their money back if the claimant is determined to be intelligible. But the state has an interest in making sure they don't approve benefits to unqualified claimants. I repeat my earlier belief that nothing should be done over the phone and that the claimant should return to the DOL office where they filed their claim to find out what is going on,

Who further suggests that the claimant write down and document by date and name as many details as to how he was inadequately trained, or how he was never given performance warnings in case he is asked, but that he sticks only to the truth, because no matter how small the employer was, you have to assume they will be armed with their own documentation and evidence if they feel claimant was terminated for cause...
