I’m looking for advice re: unemployment claims. I was fired from my job on 8/13. I applied for unemployment on 8/15 and was approved for benefits starting on 8/8.
Each week I fill out the same form where I let the office of unemployment know that I’ve been looking for work so I’m still eligible for benefits.
This question is on each form:
“Did you refuse work, quit a job, or were you discharged from a job during the week claimed?”
The first form I filled out was for the last week of my job (8/9-8/13). So I said “yes”. Because I WAS discharged from that job. I don’t know how else to interpret this sentence.
I’m so confused!!!
I have called the unemployment office to see what happened and they said that because I answered “yes” to this question I could not receive benefits. They noted down that it was a mistake and they are working on fixing it. I have called several times subsequently and they just tell me that when it is fixed I will start receiving my money. It hasn’t happened yet.
Looking for any advice on this situation, including what “discharged” means, or what to do so that I can receive my money.”

Mieza Blendery Open in Alexandria’s West End
Mieza Blendery, located at 109 Clermont Avenue off Eisenhower Avenue in Alexandria, was founded by Alex Lynch, a DC native, who fell in love with brewing Saison and Sour beer after college. As a home brewer he bought his first wine barrel in 2011 and has been brewing professionally ever since.
All of the beers at Mieza Blendery are blends of multiple beers that are barrel aged, fermented with a mixed culture, and seasonally dependent. While most beers are fermented with a single yeast strain, a mixed culture beer has a variety of different yeasts that provide elements of acidity, dryness, and expressive aromatics. Barrel aging supplies micro-oxidation for the organisms, tannin, or imparts flavors from its previous occupant, such as red wine, bourbon or mezcal. We make blends with local berries and stone fruit in the summer, wine grapes in the fall, and engage in spontaneous fermentation on winter nights. Due to the differences in base beer, microbes, and barrels as well as the variance of each season on the fruit, and the blender’s choices on blending day, each blend has a distinct story.
We have designed an intimate tasting room at Mieza for you to come and enjoy our beers. They are available on tap and in bottles to go. These mixed culture beers age well in the bottle. We plan to offer a membership program after this year’s fruiting season.
