Yes, the unemployment office sends employers a letter asking for specifics on why an employee was let go. (I'm an employer in NY). He most certainly can state you were doing your job improperly, it's his opinion as a manager of the company. The suspicion of stealing is a little more arbitrary but if he had a reasonable suspicion than yes, he can state that to them.
ps- I doubt you will win your claim, I've seen 3 of these and the unemployment office will deny benefits for a lot less than what you're fighting. Don't spend the money til you see it! Good luck.
