Unemployment benefits are not paid if an employee was fired for "cause". Cause can constitute such things as continual lateness and excessive absences. If that is what you mean by "unrelaibility", then it would appear that you would not eligible for such benefits. Without more information it's hard to state more. At this point, you should contact your state's Department of Labor for further information.
