Hawaii Unemployment If You Get Fired

In most cases, this means that if you get fired, you cannot collect unemployment benefits.

If you get fired from your job, you should go ahead and apply for unemployment benefits, because there are some cases where you can be fired from your job and still get benefits.

If you feel like you were fired unfairly, or there were extenuating circumstances, be sure to tell you unemployment counselor about them. If your unemployment application is denied because you were fired, you also have the right to appeal the decision.

Do I have a good chance in being eligible for unemployment if I am attending school full time (5 classes, 13 credits, 3 days a week) and recieving Post 9-11 GIBill? I can not work full time and the place that I have been working at just let me go because I can only work part time due to classes and home work.

I was going to be fired but I resigned instead. Do I qualify for unemployment?

I was fired because my boss feels I am disrespectful. He said that I don't do things like he wants me to do them. The real reason is that he doesn't trust my judgment or my ability to do the job well and in a timely manner.

I was hired as an independent contractor. I was just fired because my boss doesn't believe I can do the work. He is under lots of stress, loses his cool a lot, then makes decisions that his pride won't allow him to correct his error!
