Is this a case to bring to court?

So I just got fired from walmart because of my points. I got the termination letter in the mail today and on letter it states that my termination was involuntary but in another one it states that my termination was voluntary, and they are denying me unemployment. Could I take this to court?

If you applied for unemployment benefits honestly you should receive them. It is very difficult not to receive unemployment in New York unless you did something you knew or should have known would get you fired.

If you lose unemployment benefits in New York it will be very very difficult to prove your employer discriminated against you.

Smart employer's usually do not challenge unemployment in New York unless they are very confident they will win.

You should consider hiring a lawyer if you think there is any chance you might lose. Most employees can feel that. Good luck.
