Can I take my former employer to court for wrongful termination after winning an appeal for unemployment?
The situation is like this, I was terminated for what my former employer said was misconduct... I filed for unemployment and was denied, I appealed and won the hearing and now (just today) have received my first unemployment check because the judge believed that I was not wrong in any of the situations... well now can I file for wrongful termination and possibly try to get back pay of my former wage from when I was terminated???

You can file a civil suit for wrongful term - find an employment law attorney in yoru area. Decisions from related hearings such as unemployment, dept of labor, etc., are factored into a civil suit.

You may also want to file a wrongful term claim through the dept of labor (www.dol.gov to find an office near you); they will pursue the claim on your behalf for free but being a government agency, they take their sweet time.

Depends on the state. For instance in Georgia (MORAST vs. LANCE), Morast lost because in short the State of Georgia has ruled that an employer has the right to terminate employment "at will" except in the case of discrimination. The employer can dislike your shoes and tell you that you're fired.

Call a Labor Attorney in your state. Usually a consultation is free. They will be glad to tell you if you have a case. States are usually either Employee friendly or Employer friendly.

It is very Possible. Check with your Unemployment Office...hey know the Rulles best and would be your Rep. in such a case.
GOOD LUCK.

It depends on what state you live in....many are "at will" so it doesn't matter what they say you were terminated for - as long as it wasn't because of you belonging to a "protected" class (or whistle-blowing), you can be fired for any reason at all.
