I'm sure there will be no reply to this. People hate to be proven wrong. But I love it when a know-it-all gets put in their place.

Oh also mr. I know how to post a link... Read it!! Especially the disallowment of at will termination that gives a whole damn list of reasons why u can NOT fire AT WILL. It also says there is not "a true 'at will' environment in the united states".
Do u honestly think the state of Kentucky would award unemployment to someone if he WAS allowed to do so??

In Kentucky employment IS at will (most applications even provide this info in the small print); but that is a STATE law and is not superseded by the FEDERAL laws that govern unemployment. If you are terminated without verifiable just cause you are entitled to unemployment. So both of you are correct in some ways.

No, it says "it is doubtful that an absolute at-will employment situation exists in the
United States" but you must have missed this part... "Even though Kentucky is an employment at-will state"

Did you even read the article? I'm not saying you should or shouldn't have gotten unemployment, I'm refuting your argument that KY is NOT an at-will state.

"Big Bad Wolf," I know exactly who you are...you are a lazy individual who doesn't want to work and you are taking up a position that could be filled by someone who would be dedicated to his/her job.

I read it and it still has a whole list of reasons u can not be fired at will. But the article saying " it's doubtful it exists" but of course YOU KNOW BETTER they do and those getting unemployment.
The original statement was he fires people at will and is paying everyone of them unemployment. That's a100% true statement. He was not allowed to do so and now he's paying every one of them. There is no dispute about it.

Sorry to bust your little bubble but are misinformed. U must give first a verbal warning, then a written earning then fire them. If u have worked at ghat place for more that 12 weeks and were paid by check and not cash of corse, u can file for unemployment and GET IT. Because u can't walk in one day and fire someone just cause ur in a bad mood. This I know for a fact. You can not fire some one without cause and "at will"
Sorry to correct you but what you have stated is incorrect. As stated above, KY is an "At will" state. You don't have to give anyone a reason for releasing them. Yes, they can file for unemployment but depending on the reasons they were released determines their eligibility of UI. Everyone can file .... That doesn't mean you will be granted it.

I have fired many people throughout the years, never without good reason. I've had 15 to file for unemployment of which I fought an won. One of which worked for me for 3 years so NO, just because you work somewhere for 12 weeks it doesn't necessarily mean you WILL receive UI. It simply means you can "apply". It's up to the employer whether they wish to fight the claim. So do, some don't want to be bothered with it because it's time consuming.

No one said u will receive it .... It's says u can file as long as u have worked a minimum of 12 weeks. And like three people have said on here, he fired them at will, all five employees referred to filed and allll five got it. One approval letter actually stated what he did was not allowed. So take ur continuous argument to the state. The thread-is about bad bosses NOT the rules of unemployment. Trust this...there are plenty other reasons why he is a shitty boss.

I was let go AT WILL AND I repeat AND he had to pay me unemployment. I've gotten unemployment longer than I worked there. So I know for a FACT he can not do so. Got the written paperwork from unemployment office saying that can not be fine. There were five of us he's paying because of it. He hasn't a clue. I can back up everything posted previously. Hell I used an attorney to file mine. So experience and history says otherwise. Maybe if the jerk weed knew how to be a boss he might have appealed it and won but he didn't cause he knew he was wrong!!!
Unemployment and "at will" are different.

I can fire you at will without cause. If it were illegal, you would have your job back and I would be charged with a crime.

Protected classes are a little more tricky and above your comprehension level. But they too can be fired.

Unemployment is insurance. You get unemployment because you lost your job for reasons you did not chose. Yes, your former employer pays for this insurance as required by law. But make no mistake, he is not writing a check equivelant to the check you receive. He has to pay the insurance regardless if you are in the draw or not.

All the bosses in state government. I hate the boss I work for he loves his picks and if you are not one of them, then you are not worthy. The harder I work, the worse it gets. He is terrible. Does not believe in GOD, walks around cussing all day, and loves to gamble. I just hate the sight of him. He is making $100,000.00 a year and does not do anything but gamble and travel. Loves attention. I wish he would retire but no such luck. Seems like Karma has not bit him and probably never will. He will lie to your face. Told us no money in the budget for raises and guess what working on a raise for a employee now.
