My understanding is that the incidence of an open case with Workman's Comp. does not specifically preclude the employer from terminating an employee; but, that the employee IS specifically protected from practices on the part of the employer which can be constituted as harrassment over the issue, with the employee's termination possibly being construed as such harrassment should a case be pending. Employers, therefore, are specifically prohibited from terminating an employee just because that employee is pursuing action through Workman's Comp; but, anything not related to the case is still justifiable as a cause for dismissal. If you got injured on the job, and a case is pending, the employer cannot harrass you because you are exercising your rights toward compensation; but, if you fail to follow other policies established by the employer, or steal from the employer, or are insubordinate, or give the employer any other grounds upon which they may establish a justifiable and defensible basis for termination not related to the case, you're gone...

Can you still receive unemployment if you were fired for stealing but not prosecuted?

No. You are not supposed to receive unemployment if you were fired "for cause," meaning you did something wrong. If you apply for unemployment, the employer has an opportunity to dispute your eligibility, in which case your application will be rejected. There is a chance the employer will not take that opportunity.
