Hello, I work for a company that goes by the point system. While I was pregnant I had something called Hyperemisis Gravidirum. I basically couldnt hold anything down and threw up everything I ate. I lost alot of points until I was eligible for FMLA which I used all 12 weeks of that while I was pregnant. I have been back from my 6 weeks of maternity leave since mid august and when I returned I only had like 40 points. You lose 10 points per absence. I have been sick like 4 times since then and had drs notes every time but they do not excuse abscences with drs notes. I have missed again today because I am sick and I may be fired for it. I went to the dr and I am sure I can provide documentation to show every time I missed work that I went to the Dr. Would I be able to receive unemployment? Is there a long period you have to wait for them? Thanks.
You might be able to collect unemployment if you can provide all the dr notes .. especially for the last four absences. Offer to fax them to the person that calls to interview you.
I can't tell you how long it will take for Texas to issue a determination, but I will guess somewhere between 4 and 6 weeks.
