    Were you also fired for considering or taking action against employer?
    No, I quit. Which makes it even harder to get UI. But in my case, I had the smoking gun on a felony.

    recieving UI for being fired due to intent to 'whistle blow' on employer

    anyone have this experience?
    I am building my 'appeal' case, and am well aware of the procedures.

    I don't know what reason your employer might have given the UI folks for
    your termination but if you are denied UI, you can appeal. During the appeal,
    just tell the truth & your side of the story.

    thaks, I have proof that I made the statement in email,, and can submit that_if an appeal for UI.

    Who were you going to blow the whistle to?

    How did they find out you were going to blow the whistle?

    What reason did they give for your termination?
    1.to a state agency, 2. through an email, 3. all lies_anyway__very lame and unwarranted
    nothing 'major'
    and yes, i think your opinions are valuable, thanks...p.s. a 'loud' whistle!

    We need the answers to *all* the above questions but I definitely would like
    to know what reason they gave you for your termination.

    whistle blowing state laws

    Thanks for the inputs, here and above.
    I'm considering to go to an outside state agency that oversees services for the disabled population, in which the company who services them was(my last employer).
    With intent to open an investigation on said company.
    I will check the laws, but do believe possibly fired, for making the statement (in writing),
    just wondering how UI might consider that being the cause of my firing the following day; employer just made up some false accusations to 'fire' me.
    Thanks

    You haven't given enough info for anyone here to really give an informed answer.

    But one thing you need to do is check any state laws that apply to your "whistleblowing" situation. Most state's whistleblower protections only apply if you actually went outside the company and reported some kind of wrongdoing to an outside authority. Very few states (mine, NJ, is included) provide whistleblower protection for individuals who report wrongdoing internally within a company, and even they merely threaten to blow the whistle but have not done so.

    So you need to see if Michigan protects you as a whistleblower when you "were about to blow a whistle."

    seems there are laws protecting employees

    concerning whistle blowing, I think that's why I was fired,
    yes, it's all up to whoever be the judge, no doubt
    so a better question___any opinions?

    It will be up to the state to decide whether you qualify for UI benefits or not. We
    have no way of knowing what they will decide.
