I have just found out that I have to have a back surgery can I get benefits?

Unemployment-QuestionQ) I am currently working for a healthcare provider and have only been here 6 months. I have just found out that I have to have a back surgery to removed 2 screws from a previous surgery. My company doe not offer short term disability and now are stating that they can not accomodate my leave of absence of 12 weeks even though that is the doctor’s recommendation. If I were to have surgery and was terminated due to not returning at the 4 week time the company is stating would I be eligible for any type assistance until I could find another position?

A) In most cases, if you quit your job you are not eligible for unemployment. However, if you left for a good reason such as not being paid, an unsafe or unhealthy work environment, a change in your job responsibilities, discrimination, health and safety risks on the job, or some types of family emergencies you may qualify for unemployment benefits.
