I had to fire an employee for drinking (coming to work with a hangover). He had been warned several times. Plus, he was aware of our Drug and Alcohol Policy and signed the policy. Can he draw unemployment on the company? Remember he was contract labor.

You refer to this person as an "employee" but then say he was "contract labor", which to me suggests he was an independent contractor. Which is it? If he was an employee, it does seem that he engaged in misconduct and cannot draw benefits, but if he was not, then it is moot, because he cannot cite you as his last employer.
