You left out a key component - why did you miss it? Another work task? You were sick? What? That has a lot to do with it.
I don't consider it insubordinate, but it can be considered violating company policy. That's how you would explain it, that you violated company policy. In interviews, you need to explain why it happened.
I was terminated because I was accused of breaking company policy at my job. I was accused of giving a name of a member out to another member. I denied it but was terminated. I filed for unemployment and won because unemployment said they fired me without just cause. How should I explain that to a potential employer?
I was fired from my teaching job because I was using a curriculum other than the textbooks. I didn't know I was required to teach primarily from the textbooks. The principal said "I don't buy that" because there was a curriculum committee, therefore I must have known that I was required to the texts. I immediately stopped using the other curriculum, but I was still fired. What do I put down on the application, and what do I say if I get an interview?
