Q) I missed a day of work do to my father going to the hospital.. I had paper work ..They didn’t believe me so they fired me. Can I receive unemployment until I get a job?
A) It depends on your state’s laws. In some states, you may be eligible for unemployment benefits if you are fired for a good cause, such as a family emergency. In other states, you may not be eligible.
To find out if you are eligible for unemployment benefits in your state, you should contact your state’s unemployment agency. You can find the contact information for your state’s unemployment agency on the website of the U.S. Department of Labor.
When you contact your state’s unemployment agency, you will need to provide information about your employment history, your earnings, and the reason you were fired. The unemployment agency will then determine if you are eligible for benefits.
If you are eligible for unemployment benefits, you will receive a weekly benefit payment. The amount of your benefit payment will depend on your earnings and the state you live in.
You can receive unemployment benefits for up to 26 weeks in most states. However, the length of time you can receive benefits may be shorter if you have not worked for a long time or if you have a high income.
If you were fired for a good cause, such as a family emergency, you should contact your state’s unemployment agency to find out if you are eligible for benefits.
You may get unemployment benefits if you lost your job due to a family emergency. – 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.
