    can a prospective employer find out why i was fired by doing this?

    I was fired. they cited 'poor performance'. Im going to claim unemployment benefits. If I do so can a prospective employer dig that up when running a background check. Or do they only see that i claimed unemployment benefits, if at all.

    If they check with your former employer and if it's in your former employer's records then yes.

    What did you do to make poor performance? What DO You do?

    They'll find out you were fired when they check your references, but it's not going to show up on a background check. Legally, all a former employer can say is that your employment was terminated, and whether you're eligible for rehire. (Which is not to say that some dip**** in HR might not still say something.)

    If you still qualify for UI, I wouldn't worry. The only times people are denied UI is if they're fired for cause (which you were, but if you do qualify for UI, then future employers aren't necessarily going to see it that way).

    If it really was a BS excuse that got you canned, I'd save any documentation you have that demonstrates it was BS, in case you need it for your UI benefits and/or for future employers who may ask why you were fired. Chances are that they WILL ask why you left your previous job, and this is what you say: "There was no opportunity for advancement." Which is the literal truth.

    I believe your former employer can only disclose your position and your termination date. Any other information(i.e. reason for termination) directly shared with your prospect employer may be illegal and will only increase their liability IMO. I do not know if/how the role of unemployment will/may affect this, but you typically still have to disclose/discuss the reason on the application/during the interview.

    You DO have to disclose why you were fired when applying for UI (because it's going to be confirmed by the company). Just not when interviewing for jobs.

    I would have no problem discussing why i was fired when applying for UI. It came from higher up and my boss did not really agree with their decision but it was out of his hand. My fear is that if a prospective employer calls the Unemployment benefit office they will be told i was fired for poor performace. If they call my boss he has my back.

    If your boss had your back you would still be working there! Saying it came from higher up and the decision was out of his hands is what week managers say because they can't handle confrontation. Don't use him as a reference. There was some pretty good advise above. You'll will be OK.
