My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Nevada
My girlfriend currently works in a high-stress office environment as an eviction paralegal. She has Asperger's syndrome which makes it very difficult for her to do her job due to her inability to talk to clients, and her condition also makes her obsessively focus on work which is causing her health to decline physically. She recently had surgery and insisted on going back to work right away which delayed her recovery, and she has several medical issues as well which are being worsened from the stress of her job. She grinds her teeth at night which has worsened her TMJ, which a doctor said was severe and will likely need surgery. That surgery will keep her from being able to talk or work for 2 months, and she's been delaying having her medical issues taken care of (There are other procedures she needs done as well) because she doesn't want to let her company down as well as the financial stress that quitting would cause. Her company absolutely will not fire her as they are too nice to do so.
My question is, would she qualify for unemployment benefits if she quits in order to take care of her medical issues? The unemployment guidelines say that she will be ineligible if she quits without good cause, but good cause isn't clearly defined. I know if she had some sort of reassurance that she could get unemployment that she may be more likely to take care of the surgeries she needs done, but I can't find any information about this. Would it help if she had notes from her doctors explaining the need for her to quit?
