Unemployment and Injury
I live in NYS and have been collecting unemployment for a few months. If I become injured and have to have surgery, how will this affect my unemployment and what steps do I need to take?
Having a surgery will make you not able and available for work .. therefore when you file your weekly claims .. report it as such .. better still call the unemployment office and talk to them.
When you are released by your doctor to go back to work .. you can pick up your claim again .. as long as it hasn't expired in the interim.
