File if in CA. A CA employer has the burden to prove willful misconduct to dispute benefits. It's not enough to be bad at the work - they have to show some state of mind of the employee that meets that element.
If the employer can't give proof, then the employee gets the benefits. It's uncommon that an employer has objective evidence of a typical fired employee (way less likely if the company fires lots of people).
