You probably will still not be able to obtain unemployment benefits. Like being terminated for absenteeism, being terminated due to an accusation of sexual harassment has been considered by the courts as a legitimate reason to deny unemployment benefits because of its importance and implications to other employees’ safety.
In the majority of these cases, the employer has a sexual harassment policy. That policy usually allows for an investigation and possible termination. If an employer exercises its option to terminate the person accused of sexual harassment, the employer has fulfilled its duties and can legitimately cite misconduct.
As for being innocent of the sexual harassment charge, that does not play into the decision from the state’s unemployment office. The office only looks at whether or not the employer followed its own policy and that the termination was due to the accusation.
