Chances of recieving unemployment for car troubles?? (ILLINOIS)
I have a somewhat tricky situation. I have NOT been terminated from my position yet but I am preparing for the worse.
My transmission went out on my vehicle. I contacted my supervisor & let him know that I would need sometime off to get this taken care off in which I was granted a week long leave of absence. I was told if I did not return in this time frame I would have “voluntary resign” Prior to my transmission going out, I forewarned my supervisor via email (documentation that I have) informing him of car troubles I was having & that it may cause me to miss time in the near future. I recieved no response from him.
In this email I let him know there was no public transportation that ran from my home to work, cab fare ONE WAY was $35 in which I informed him I could not afford everyday, no reliable rides to get to work & my credit was in no condition to take get a loan for a new vehicle. I also inquired if the company provided any ssistance for matters like this & was told they did not.
My quesion is………..
IF I am terminated for car/transportation issues that I could not resolve within the timeframe given by my employer, would this be considered “MISCONDUCT” on my part & hinder me from recieving unemployment benefits in the state of Illinois???
