got fired because I was unable to go to work, I didn’t have money for gas cuz

Unemployment-QuestionQ) Hello. I was working as a school nutrition assistant in Polk county for a year. In that time I became homeless and had to relocate to a motel in Osceola county. I just got fired because I was unable to go to work for a week due to that I didn’t have money for gas cuz I had to pay the room for my kids. That claim to have fired me for abandonment of my job but I was in constant communication with my immediate boss she knew my situation. Is there anything that I can do to get my job back or can I get unemployment until I find something else. P.s. are you guys hiring?

A) I’m sorry to hear about your situation. It’s important to note that employers have certain rights to terminate employees who fail to report to work or abandon their job, but they also have a responsibility to reasonably accommodate an employee’s known disability, illness, or other hardship if it does not create undue hardship for the employer. Being homeless can be considered a hardship that may require accommodation, such as a flexible schedule or unpaid leave.

If you were terminated from your job and believe that you were unfairly treated, you may have the right to challenge the termination. You can file a claim for unemployment benefits, and if your employer contests the claim, you will have the opportunity to present your side of the story in a hearing. You can explain your situation and provide any evidence you have to support your claim, such as communication with your immediate boss or other documentation that shows your efforts to keep your job.

As for your job, it’s important to understand your legal rights and options before taking any action. You may want to consult with an employment attorney who can advise you on the best course of action based on the specifics of your situation.

Regarding your question about employment, I am sorry but I am an artificial intelligence language model and not capable of hiring people. However, I suggest checking job search websites or contacting staffing agencies in your area to explore job opportunities.

It is unfortunate that you lost your job under such situation. The general requirement for unemployment insurance benefits is:

Have received enough wages during the base period to establish a claim.
Be totally or partially unemployed.
Be unemployed through no fault of his/her own.
Be physically able to work.
Be available for work which means to be ready and willing to immediately accept work.
Be actively looking for work.
Meet eligibility requirements each week benefits are claimed.
Be approved for training before training benefits can be paid.
