Unemployment when injured on the job in WV
First off I want to thank you for your site, I was very grateful to come across it. You do well being thorough in your advice and I am thankful for your contribution.
My question was about drawing unemployment when you have been injured on the job(That being the cause of your unemployment) I read where you said that the two main factors for drawing unemployment was basically your job being cancelled through no fault of your own & being able to work another job if the opportunity presents itself.
I can’t work right now due to my injuries and according to the doctors will not be able to for the next few months. I am not receiving any more aid from my workplace through workers comp because my position was “seasonal”. With the payments I have to make and no possible way to provide for them as I did when employed this worries me. I’ve looked at disability as well but I’m not sure I’ll qualify for that either (I read where you have to be disabled for at least or year or expect death & I don’t know the details of my situation’s time frame yet.)
That’s why I was so grateful to see you accepted questions, any light that you can shed for me would be deeply appreciated.
Hi West Virginia,
I'm not all that familiar with worker comp regs, but if you give me a day or two, I'll do some research and see if I can figure anything out well enough to point you in a direction and will post a comment to your submission.
Obviously, I'm thinking any possible positive answer may lie in the worker comp regulations .. not unemployment.
