A) Yes, you may be eligible for unemployment benefits after working 84 hours a week since Christmas with only 1 other employees help until you collapsed.
You can file for unemployment benefits if you are laid off through no fault of your own. This could include being overworked, having your hours reduced, or being fired for a reason that is not your fault.
In your case, it sounds like you were overworked and your employer did not provide you with the help you needed. This could be considered a legitimate reason for unemployment benefits. However, it is important to note that the decision of whether or not to grant you benefits will ultimately be up to the unemployment office in your state.
If you are concerned about your eligibility for unemployment benefits, I recommend that you contact your state’s unemployment office. They will be able to provide you with more information about the specific requirements in your state and help you file a claim.
Here are some additional things to consider:
- You may need to provide proof of your doctor’s note.
- You may need to provide proof that you are actively seeking work.
- You may need to file a weekly claim with your state’s unemployment office.
If you are approved for unemployment benefits, you will receive a weekly payment. The amount of your payment will depend on your earnings and the state you live in.
I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
In addition to filing for unemployment benefits, you may also want to consider contacting an employment lawyer to discuss your case. An employment lawyer can help you understand your rights and options and can represent you in any legal proceedings that may arise.
If an employer is at fault because of creating or maintaining a hostile working environment for which on employee had to quit, in most states that is grounds to file for unemployment insurance benefits. It is important that you have information to substantiate your claim for benefits. Visit your State Unemployment benefits website and view theirs requirements to qualify for benefits. Call a counselor and inform him/her of your situation and ask how to proceed with your claim.
