Incompetence for yhe is generally not a termination for cause event. The employer has a responsibility to determine suitability and provide training for the position they are filling, not the candidate. I was once taken to government arbitration where my former employer claimed I maliciously did not live up to my potential. That was hard to hear, but the arbiter laughing as she dismissed the appeal was music to my ears.

If this was in fact the state contacting the claimant and the claim was just filed a week ago, it could just be a paper pusher trying to fill in the facts of an incomplete claim. But that they would do it over the phone and not require the claimant to come down in person must be something unique to Texas. If the claimant has not yet received an official notice of determination on the claim, it is possible the employer doesn't even know of it yet.

Who notes with some large companies, the costs of UIB is just the cost of doing business unless there is an overt action by the claimant that triggered their termination, and the part of HR that deals with these state queries just file the paperwork and move on...
