My son has reactive airway disease. I have missed work. Am I eligible for unemployment?

Q) My one year old son has reactive airway disease which causes him to vomit and be sick a lot, he recently had strep throat due to the time I have to miss because of him being sick I am at jeopardy of losing my job. I have been applying to multiple places to ensure I have something else lined up being I am a single mother and pay for all of his needs myself. I am worried that I will not be able to get a new job within the time I have left at my current job. Am I eligible for unemployment? Again I am trying my hardest to find something else but I haven’t received any calls for interviews, I wouldn’t even request unemployment if it wasn’t for needing to take care of my son. I have never been on unemployment so I am not sure how this works. My job has a point system of 10 points and with his sickness I used all of the fmla time and have 9 points. I am afraid I won’t be able to provide for my son.

A) According to the Department of Labor, you need to meet two criteria to qualify for unemployment: You are unemployed through no fault of your own: That means you are out of a job due to reasons beyond your control, like a layoff. So, if you quit your job or are fired for gross misconduct, you’re not eligible.

  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
