Q) I had two doc notes for being out. They stopped excepting doc notes for being excused from work and counted those days against me. They fired me. Can I collect unemployment?
A) To qualify for unemployment benefits you must have lost your job because of no fault of your own. You must have also worked the minimum amount of hours over a period of time required by your state. You must also be ready and available for work. You will not qualify for unemployment benefits if you are sick. You need to speak with a counselor at your local unemployment office to see if your situation qualifies for benefit claim. Each state has different rules regarding unemployment claims, so please call or visit your local unemployment office.
