Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Thank you for the information and your questions. Can you please tell me what you mean by "case against" your employer? What kind of case are you asking about there? Also, are you saying that your employer did not provide reasonable accommodation when you asked for it? Did you file a formal request and complaint with HR and have it denied before you quit?
No problem and thank you for clarifying that. Yes, you should definitely appeal the denial, as long as you can work at some type of job since that is one requirement for collecting UI benefits. What you will want to do is to discuss what you tried to work out with your employer as far as any accommodations in work go due to your medical condition and what they would or would not do for you. Also, if you have a doctor who is willing to say that your back injury was exacerbated by your work, that will be helpful.
Please feel free to ask follow up questions if you have them. If none, then if you could take a moment to leave a positive rating in the ratings box above, I will receive credit for assisting you today. Thank you
I wanted to touch base with you and make sure that you did not have any follow up questions for me from the answer I provided to you on the 7th. For some reason, the Experts are not always getting replies, or ratings (at the top of the question/answer page you are viewing or in the pop up box for this question), which is how we get credit(paid by the Site) for our work, that the customer thinks have gone through. In your case I not received your rating.
Please keep in mind that I cannot control the law or your circumstances, and am ethically bound to provide you with accurate information based on the facts you give me even if the news is not good. If you are having technical difficulties with reading, replying or rating,please let me know so that I can inform the Site administrator.
