Can I collect unemployment if I was fired from my job?

If you are fired from a job, it is possible to receive unemployment compensation. In order to receive this type of compensation, you have to have been let go for reasons other than misconduct. This type of insurance protection is for those who are let go through no fault of their own.

If you prompted your release by being involved in something that was against company policies, you could be denied unemployment compensation. Each case is different and your employer could fight your claim. If being let go was not your fault, you should be able to collect.
