Unemployment Tip - The Importance of the Final Incident

The final incident is the very last event that led to the decision to terminate an employee. In other words, the event but for which the termination would not have taken place. Many employers wonder why they are losing unemployment claims for terminated employees who have a long history of poor attendance or who have previously violated workplace policies. When there is a solid history of unacceptable conduct, yet the state still finds that the termination was not for willful misconduct, you can generally look to the final incident for the explanation.
