INFO: How/ why were you denied unemployment if you were laid off? In most places, the only way to lose unemployment is to be fired for cause (for example, stealing or repeatedly not showing up for work). Mere poor performance, or allegations of poor performance, do not disqualify you.I’m not entirely sure. I just assumed that it was because I had only been at my place of employment for 2 months (we just moved to this area and I couldn’t get a transfer, so I had to reapply and go back through the hiring process) because I know that generally (putting COVID aside) in my state you have to work at the same place for a minimum of a year before you can be approved for unemployment.
That is usually a misunderstanding of the requirements. You usually need to have continuous employment (or near-continuous, usually at least 75% employment for the past year, meaning you worked at least 9 of the last 12 months), not have lost your job for cause, not quit voluntarily, and not have used all your weeks of unemployment in the past 12 month period (usually you get 12 weeks, some states have more).
