Re: Filing for Unemployment
Please, quit giving this same response to multiple posts, people already know that.
As we all know - lawyers aren't always available for every question or to chit chat.
That's the purpose of this forum, to share experiences and knowledge and to save waiting days for our lawyers to call us back.
After about three calls to that lawyer and they'll consider you a pest and quit responding.
It's a contradiction to certify that you're physically able and available for full time employment to get unemployment while claiming to be disabled and waiting on a comp settlement - both can't be true.
Is it possible to file for unemployment while waiting on WC settlement?
Don't do it unless advised to do so by your lawyer, depending on the facts of your case it may be allowed but I doubt it.
