The COVID-19 pandemic has brought many uncertainties to our society, including to our work force. Many people had to quit their job or were fired. Often, it is assumed that if an employee quit or was fired, they will be unable to receive unemployment in Minnesota. However, this is inaccurate.
Under the law in Minnesota, you may be able to get unemployment if you were fired for several reasons, including simple unsatisfactory conduct, conduct an average and reasonable employee would have engaged in under the circumstances, mere inefficiency, or inadvertence.
If you had to quit your job or were fired and you did not receive unemployment, contact attorney Andrew Moeller by email or call 507-625-2525 today to understand your rights. Attorney Moeller has appealed and won many cases with the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development.
