I Have been out on medical leave. Can I get unemployment?

unemployed_personQ) I have been out on medical leave with no pay since November 14,2014. I just started that job the end of September, taking a 20 thousand dollar a year Pay cut after being fired. So I’ve had no income for 4 weeks. Can I get unemployment during this time? I had emergency surgery and can’ go back to work for at least another week and bill are due.

A) You may want to consider applying for short term disability. As The general requirement for unemployment insurance benefits are:

Have received enough wages during the base period to establish a claim.
Be totally or partially unemployed.
Be unemployed through no fault of his/her own.
Be physically able to work.
Be available for work which means to be ready and willing to immediately accept work.
Be actively looking for work.

Meet eligibility requirements each week benefits are claimed.
Be approved for training before training benefits can be paid.

  1. Hello.

    My company is currently hiring and I was wondering how I may go about sending a job posting.

    We are looking for staff with reliable vehicles that can hold 3 individuals with developmental disabilities. They must pass a DOJ background check with Community Care Licensing. We teach life skills, vocational skills, communication, money management, socialization in a completely community based setting. We pay $12/hour and offer a mileage reimbursement of 53 cents /mile that one of our individuals are in the vehicle. Our greatest needs are in Temecula, Murrieta and Menifee; however if a person is willing to work at any of those locations we can get them started. After background checks are completed the staff attend 4 days of paid training in Rancho Cucamonga at our state office followed by a day to familiarize themselves with our program before heading into the field with their individuals for field training.

    If you have any questions or would like me to send the Now Hiring flyer, please let me know.

    Many thanks,

    Jennie Hurley
    Program Director
