Trying to help my nephew, here’s the story (for those that know me, my family is getting into all types of shit):
He worked as a salesman for a company. In November, his boss listed some concerns that he had, and that his sales were not up to par, and asked him to sign the paper. He did.
His sales actually went up slightly, but were still slow.
In Feb he was fired because he did not meet company sales goals.
That day, he called the HR dept, and asked if he was “laid off” or “fired”, so he coud complete his UE app. The HR person told him neither, but that being let go for not making sales goals was no reason for him to be denied UE benefits.
He collects his bennies, 2 MONTHS LATER- he gets a notice that says his UE benifits MAY be taken away because he was let go because of “work performance”. He has to fill out a questionairre which asks him questions like, were you warned about your work perfomance?
Dopers, I dont think my nephew should lose his benefits just because he was a shitty salesman, he showed up for work everyday, and did the best he could. Any unemploymant experts out there?
