Do You Qualify For Unemployment Compensation?

Most Missouri employees qualify for unemployment compensation after they lose their jobs. To not qualify, you have to be terminated "for cause" for misconduct related to your employment. Your employer generally must also have a policy in place that prohibits the particular type of misconduct. For instance, if your employer has a policy against theft, and you are fired for stealing merchandise from the store room, you would not be eligible for unemployment compensation.

If your employer doesn't have such a policy, it is unclear on whether you would be entitled to compensation. Regardless, don't guess on whether you were terminated for work-related misconduct.
