Q) My wife work at a place, she is a Month and half pregnant she have missed a few day from work because she be feeling sick and now they fired her for being absent can she get unemployment
A) Whether or not someone who was fired for being absent is eligible for unemployment benefits depends on the specific circumstances surrounding the absence and the laws and regulations of the state where the individual was employed.
In general, to be eligible for unemployment benefits, an individual must have lost their job through no fault of their own, such as a layoff, reduction in force, or other reasons beyond their control. If an individual was fired for absenteeism, the state’s unemployment agency will typically investigate the reason for the absence and whether or not it was considered misconduct.
If the absence was due to a legitimate illness or injury, and the individual provided appropriate documentation to their employer, they may be eligible for unemployment benefits. However, if the absence was due to personal reasons or misconduct, such as excessive absences or failure to follow the employer’s attendance policy, the individual may not be eligible for benefits.
It’s important to note that eligibility for unemployment benefits varies by state and depends on the specific circumstances of the situation. I recommend that your friend contacts their state’s unemployment agency to inquire about their eligibility and how to apply for benefits. They may also want to consult with an employment law attorney for additional guidance.
In order for your wife to get unemployment insurance benefits she must meet your state unemployment benefit requirements – Please visit your state unemployment office website and view your state unemployment benefit requirements.
