Q. Can I get unemployment compensation if I’m fired? There was no reason for me to be fired. It was a personality conflict between me and my boss.

A. It depends on your date and the people handling your claim, but in general you should receive unemployment compensation if you were fired without cause. There are also requirements about how long you worked there and your past jobs but the whole reason for unemployment compensation is situations where you are let go through no fault of your own.

If your ex-employer protests your claim you can fight it. They will probably arrange a telephone hearing to hear both sides. Tell the whole story!
