Professional licensing entity screw up has delayed renewal of professional license subsequently leading to termination because of inability to work due to expired license
I have a professional license through state of Ohio. August 31st was the last day for renewal if not renewed be fore midnight on the 31st of August, it is illegal to work. This particular State licensing entity requires online renewal only. There was apparently a glitch in their online renewal program. I contacted the licensing entity and they sent me a reinstatement package that I was to fill out and return. I received it. Immediately filled it out and sent it back. The licensing entity received the returned package from me, however they are dragging their feet reinstating my license. The job I worked at since October 2011 had to terminate me because of my inability to work. My employer also said as soon as my license is reinstated they would immediately hire me back. Am I entitled to unemployment under these circumstances?
