Q) I’m pregnant an i must leave my job for six mouth but i’m not eligible to receive FMLA .during this time i gonna stay at home is it possible to apply for unemployment
A) It depends on the particular state’s laws regarding unemployment benefits during pregnancy. In general, if you voluntarily quit your job, you may not be eligible for unemployment benefits. However, if you are forced to leave your job due to circumstances beyond your control, such as a medical condition related to pregnancy, you may be eligible for benefits. It is recommended that you check with your state’s unemployment agency to determine the eligibility requirements for pregnancy-related unemployment benefits. Additionally, you may want to look into other sources of income such as short-term disability or paid family leave.
If you lose your job through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to unemployment benefits even if you are pregnant. It is illegal for employers to discriminate against you based on pregnancy status. This includes firing you for pregnancy-related medical conditions if they provide accommodation for similar disabilities unrelated to pregnancy. The eligibility requirements for collecting unemployment are the same, whether you are pregnant or not. In addition, the federal government has passed a number of laws protecting pregnant women and new mothers from employment discrimination or hardship.
