I was injured on my last job. Can I get unemployment benefits?
April 10, 2014
Q) I was injured on my last job. Due to many factors, I ended up resigning. After surgery and therapy, I am finding that I am still having problems obtaining employment. I landed a great job through a temp svc and was let go in 2 days due to the past injury. Is it possible that I would be eligible for unemployment even though I resigned?
A) If you have been injured on the job you should be looking at applying for Disability Benefits. As in order to get unemployment benefits you must be physically able to work at the time you file your unemployment insurance benefit claim.
