Q) I applied and was denied unemployment in November 2013. I was off work due to herniated discs In back. I was available for “light duty” work and was told by employer I had to wait until ready for full duty. I applied for unemployment to cover my bills while off work. When contacted by State Unemployment office I was told my employer stated “I Quit” and my benefits were denied. I’m still unemployed without income and need my case reevaluated please. I’ve constantly searched for work. I also lost my health insurance which has halted my medical process on my back. Thank You.
A) If you were injured on the job I recommend you look at applying for Disability benefits. In order to qualify for unemployment insurance benefits you need to be ”available for full-time work for which you are fitted by prior training or experience”.
