Cursed at and threatend with a corrective action (write Up)

My supervisor(Resident Manager) started cursing and acitng out due to me asking him a question about my leave request. I got upset and walked off the job. I then called his supervisor and explained the situation and asked to be placed in another site he refused to do it and told me if I applied for unemployment that he would deny everything. I applied and was denied due to him denying anything of such nature happened.

There is far too much information missing from your post to adequately assess it. Most importantly, what was the "leave" you were talking about? There are special rules for employers concerning medical/caregiver leave that may apply. Otherwise, employers are free to fire employees for any reason or no reason at all in NY, and it is universally true that an employer is entitled to terminate an employee who walks off the job. You are always entitled to fight for unemployment benefits, but whether you will win is largely dependent on the leave to which you refer and the nature of your argument with your supervisor. Good luck.
