Our owner was not going to take issue with her collecting unemployment, because, essentially, we will also be eliminating her position. There was no gross misconduct.
Then today, we found out that she has been frauding a State in our United States, by still claiming unemployment benefits from that state. We got a call from an investigator from that state. (She moved here last year - 9 months ago).
Now, this more than ever makes our boss want to terminate her -- being an issue of integrity and, basically, breaking the law. Now he doesn't even want he to collect unemployment.
Would this be considered Gross Misconduct or Cause on OUR PART. We don't even know if she's charged. All we know from the investigator is that TODAY the investigator spoke to her, and was told that our employee was NOT working for us. That she has applied, but didn't get the job.
Should this new information even enter into our terminating discussions? Should it apply to her option to collect unemployment from her new state?
