HA! Not in Wisconsin. They get unemployment no matter what they've done. The employer always loses. I've never seen a claim denied, and they collect for 2 full years. We let a man go in January of 2012, and he's still collecting Unemployment Compensation because he worked 2 weeks in 2012, so he got all of 2012 and all of 2013. Something about "if they qualify of any part of a period, then they qualify for the whole period." He was coming to work drunk.
