    Default Unemployment Benefits Denied for Medical Reasons

    My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: florida
    My mom is a nurse assistant at a nursing home in Florida. She is having back surgery and her company is threatening to fire her and deny unemployment insurance to her because she would be unable to perform her normal job tasks. From what I understand this is impossible unless she is no longer employable for any job. Please help!

    The employer may contest unemployment. The state, and only the state, can grant or deny benefits. The employer cannot.

    If she is medically unable to work, she will not qualify for UI. If she is, then there's no reason why she should be disqualified. But the state, not the employer, will make the final decision.

    Thank-you CBQ. Then my next question would be 1. Does she have to be employable for her former line of employment(as a nurse aid) or any job in the state of FLorida?

    You'll have to ask the UI office of Florida that one. It will be their decision, not mine.
