If you get fired because you’ve been on the bench too long from not being able to find a project does this constitute being able to receive unemployment until you find a new job?

Yes, unemployment is able to be claimed unless you were fired for cause, which then an employer needs to provide evidence of such.

Need advice. We have a member on our team that doesn’t follow process, ignores asks, and undermines those above. They kinda go off and do their own thing, implement their own way of doing things. They are deeply embedded in the culture and are well liked by leadership. The dept head continues to praise them on calls, even when they ignore asks, push back, do not follow process. Do I say something? Do I let live? I’m new to the team and find this dynamic really uncomfortable.
