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) 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.

  1. I have not worked in nine years. I keep getting letters from Michigan Dept of Labor saying they are offering me more unemployment money, You can’t go to their office, it seems to be closed, you can’t talk to anyone on the phone, you just get a recording telling you to go online and appeal to get more benefits.
    I mailed in and emailed in and faxed in fraud reports, I get back a nice letter telling me how to file to get more benefits.
    Now I get a 1099 for $5,500.00 that I am supposed to pay tax on.
    So I sent another fraud report and today I get a letter from them saying I am approved for more benefits and how to appeal their decision and try to get een more benefits.
    I have received no money from them, I asked where they were sending the money, no reply. They have my address to send me info on getting more benefits, so where are they sending the money?
    China? Russia? This is pure insanity.
