Can I collect unemployment if my job lets me go after having a baby?"
Can I collect unemployment if my job lets me go after having a baby?" I am 6 months pregnant and just started a job. I will not work there long enough to receive FMLA or PTO. Can I collect unemployment after I have the baby? I am in the state of Texas?
How long are you planning to be out? In the absence of available PTO or FMLA have you spoken to the employer about a personal LOA when you do have your baby?
Will you have qualifying wages in your base period?

I've answered many question about being fired for a "circumstance beyond your control".
To understand your situation I suggest you need to understand the difference between being fired for misconduct or "appearing to have quit without good cause" which you can find my monologue about on Can you quit and collect unemployment.
If you have the qualifying wages .. and if you take the appropriate action .. there is no reason you should not be able to collect unemployment if they fire you.
