I am currently on medical restrictions and unable to do my job, Would I be eligible for unemployment benefits?

Q) I have been employed with my company for 2 yrs and 5 mths. I am currently on restrictions from my doctor and am unable to do my job with the restrictions. I called my employer to see if they could get FMLA papers for me to fill out. My employer stated I was not eligible for FMLA until July because I had filed a year ago in July. I asked if I’d still have my job and she told me I would have to reapply and they would see if they had a position for me. I had been in contact with my boss through texts and I was never told I was terminated. I was only informed of this when I called about FMLA papers. Would I be eligible for unemployment benefits?

A) An important qualifier for unemployment insurance benefits is you must be willing and available to work before you can receive benefits. In other words, the states wants to know that you are out looking for work while you are receiving benefits. Every state imposes these basic requirements. Physically ready and able to work. Actively seeking a new jobs. Willing to accept suitable offers that comes your way.

You may want to look at qualifying for short term disability.

  1. Hello.

    My company is currently hiring and I was wondering how I may go about sending a job posting.

    We are looking for staff with reliable vehicles that can hold 3 individuals with developmental disabilities. They must pass a DOJ background check with Community Care Licensing. We teach life skills, vocational skills, communication, money management, socialization in a completely community based setting. We pay $12/hour and offer a mileage reimbursement of 53 cents /mile that one of our individuals are in the vehicle. Our greatest needs are in Temecula, Murrieta and Menifee; however if a person is willing to work at any of those locations we can get them started. After background checks are completed the staff attend 4 days of paid training in Rancho Cucamonga at our state office followed by a day to familiarize themselves with our program before heading into the field with their individuals for field training.

    If you have any questions or would like me to send the Now Hiring flyer, please let me know.

    Many thanks,

    Jennie Hurley
