Fired for violating the attendance point system. - Illinois

by PAT
(GALESBURG, IL)

MY EMPLOYER USES THE POINT SYSTEM WHERE IF YOU USE UP YOUR POINTS FOR THE YEAR THEN YOU GET FIRED. WELL I POINTED OUT BECAUSE OF MEDICAL REASONS LIKE HAVING DIARIA AND NOT DRIVING THE 13 MILES TO WORK THINKING I WILL NOT MAKE IT THE DISTANCE SO I DECIDED MY BEST BET IS TO JUST STAY HOME.EVERY TIME I DO THAT IT COSTS ME 2 POINTS. WELL I USED ALL OF THEM UP AND GOT FIRED FOR IT.CAN I COLLECT UNEMPLOYMENT BECAUSE OF THIS?


Hi Pat,

It depends. Did you go to the doctor? Do you have a note. Is this "problem" recurrent and have you sought out medical help for the problem? Does the employer have a policy which requires a doctor's note? Did they ask for one?

This is why many states like to see "documentation". It alleviates the need to ask all the questions.

ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTION
by: Anonymous

I DID CALL THE DOCTOR AND WAS TOLD JUST TO GET SOME MEDICINE TO CONTROL MY PROBLEM. DID THIS BUT DID NOT GET A DOCTORS SLIP FOR WORK. WILL I BE DENIDED UNEMPLOYMENT?

I DO NOT ANSWER THAT QUESTION. THE STATE DOES. DID YOU READ ANY INFORMATION IN THE LINK I PROVIDED FOR YOU?

APPEAL
by: Anonymous

I WAS DENIED MY BENEFITS AS TO THIS MATTER I EXPLAINED IN MY RECENT QUESTION. WOULD IT BE WORTH IT TO APPEAL MY CASE OR WOULD I JUST BE WAISTING MY TIME?


Yes, appeal you will simply need to tell your story .. that the absence you were fired for was due to illness .. and if you called the doctor .. it should be noted in your file .. ask them to write something up that says you called on that day and use it at the hearing.

If you are looking for a guarantee .. I don't give those.

Hi Sandy S.

Thanks for making a post about Time Management Systems on a website for unemployment claimants, but since I get a lot of employer traffic .. maybe it will do you some good??

Or maybe you should have emailed me first.

Better use of time

Your time would be better spent looking for a job. Then you won't have to worry about getting a company to pay you for not working. Just some thing to think about. Good luck.

Was curious if you are trying to improve your condition since losing your job. Your next employer will likely expect you to be consistantly present at work as well. How do you deal with traveling to other places? Are you confined to a limited radius of your home?
