unemployment in north carolina if you are unable to work due to medical reasons
I have been on FMLA for the past 10 weeks. It seems the injury I sustained will not be going away anytime soon. This injury was not due to work, it involved a car accident in 2008. When I get to the 12 weeks my employer will be able to let me go, but I will be unable to collect unemployment because I physically won't be able to do a job. Is this a correct assumption?? If that's the case what options do I have? I have a family to care for, is there anything else I can do??
Your assumption is correct. You must be able and available to work. This is a basic eligibility requirement for collecting unemployment, unless you worked in a state that has temporary disability unemployment .. and NC is not one of those VERY FEW states that do have a program like this.
I do not profess to know anything about any other kind of governmental assistance.
I do know about the one that resides inside your cranium and the two that are attached to the ends of your wrists and those bodily parts seem to be working in your favor.
When I decided to start this website .. I was in the same kind of predicament. The only place I knew to look for help was myself.
