i was fired today because i have had a stomach virus for two days, i notified my employer when i got sick later that day my employer called and said i could either be in the next day or i was fired. i was still sick i told him i was still sick and running a pretty high fever he said it didn't matter if i wasn't there for work the next day i didn't have a job. i was still sick the next day i couldn't go in. now i have no job a 2yr old daughter and pregnant wife, do i still qualify for unemployment?


Hi Travis,

You might. If you didn't have a doctor's note though it could come down to a credibility factor.
