My employer lied on my separation notice, stating that I quit when I was in fact fired and there are 2 other employees who saw this. What can I do?

More details to this question:
I was fired due at no fault of my own but due to actions of a former employee which I told the DOL but it doesn''t appear that they take my statements into account since they denied my Unemployment benefits because of what the employer said in the notice.

You must follow the procedures for appealing the denial of your benefits. The employer will then be required to show that you actually engaged in willful misconduct to deny your benefits.
