Customer Question

hello need help I work for a hospital in downtown Chicago, currently they not allowed Me to come to work. They say I cannot return until I call a Employee assistance Program phone number. its a number for drug and alcohol dependency (witch I do not have) I was told to leave because I questioned their volition of labor laws and patient safety issues I've tried calling but the lines are dead expect one that ask for a code,(which I don't have) I now think there trying to claim job abandonment. Iv contacted HR directly but they keep redirecting me. My Director verbally stated on the phone.September 9,2015 my official status was on leave. Rush HR has told me I am currently not on leave.

I am sorry for this dilemma...but do not understand your specific question.

Can you tell me, what is your question regarding this? Are you asking if you can collect unemployment if they fire you?
