No real reason to be let go. Reasons for reprimand and correction while learning procedures, but not termination. Other employees made the same mistakes but were a not talked to harshly as I was, written up nor suspended. Was enduring harassment by others while outselling them. In last month of selling, outsold ALL new hires by $40,000 or more and outsold at least 3 long term employees. So, to some degree, you are correct, there was a reason, but it was not honorable.

Did have a job within 2 weeks. Was called by a competitor (did not apply) and asked to come to work. That company is treating me well and glad I am there doing the very same thing and using the very same software. Nice not to have to retrain. Applied for one unemployment check and was denied. Appealing.

If you have a write up and suspension in the file, they'll probably be able to make the 'fired for cause' stick. They'll argue that they tried progressive discipline. Take comfort in the fact that the contested hearing will probably cost them more than you getting one week's unemployment will.

Good luck.

The reason they gave you has to be consistent with the reason that they placed in your file....they can’t tell you one thing to spare your feelings while officially documenting a policy violation, for instance. In that case, the hearing official will go with the reason that most benefits you. In my 13 years in Human Resources I found that most HR problems were, if not caused, were certainly allowed to get worse, because of the company’s failure to follow its own policies.

Def appeal.
Years ago, I was fired for no good reason. They wanted my position free to hire an “ex girlfriend”.
I was denied initially - I appealed. He stuttered through the entire appeal. Won, collected 1 wk as I was back to work elsewhere. I only fought it to prove a point.

Not deniable.

Sometimes you’ll get a supervisor who just doesn’t like you and sees to it to get you gone.

I’ve had that unfortunate experience.

Sounds like you found a company that might be better to work for.
