It depends if you have an employment contract or not. If not (and  sometimes even then) you can be fired for any reason as you are an  "employee at will' and it is at the companies discretion as to if  they want to continue your employment.
You can FILE for unemployment benefits but they will be paid only  for the period when you were available for work. For example, if  you were hospitalized between 8/01/2014 and 08/15/2014, came home  and felt you could return to work on 08/20/2014, your 'waiting  period' would start on 08/20...

The short answer is... you probably won't be able to find it, ever. There is simply not enough premium collected from a short-term workers comp policy for an insurer to want to accept the potential cost of employee injury claims.   To make this more meaningful consider this... your workers...
If you meet the qualifications for unemployment, then you can file  for the unemployment benefits. These requirements do not include  anything about owning a separate household from your parents. You  just have to have lost your job for a reason that is not your fault  and there are salary/work...
Entirely possible. Usually a working enviroment that pays commission will let you work any hours you want, but will require you to be there a minimum amount of hours.
Don't tell them. That's not something they have a right or obligation to know. All they are obligated to know is that you used to work at a particular job. In fact, if you tell them your work history and consent to them calling a previous employer all they can legally ask is if you used to work...

Labor laws are different everywhere. There are laws at the federal,  state and even local municipal levels. In CA, for example, it is  legal to schedule an employee to work seven days a week so long as  that employee is properly compensated. Fun fact, in CA if an  employee is scheduled to work...
No. You cannot deduct lost income when you never claim the actual  income in the first place. You are only taxed on the amount of  taxable income that you received. The reason that Worker's  Compensation pays you at this level is that you are not paying  income taxes, state taxes, social...

Minimum wage laws can be different at the federal, state and local  municipal levels, but minimum wage is not affected by your filing  status. If minimum wage is $8.00 per hour where you work, then it's  still $8.00 per hour whether you're married or single.
you can apply for a working permit or visa something like that and that will let you work for a specific amount of time and I believe you can renew it .
No. Unless serving in the military or suffering a debilitating  injury, jury duty is a civic requirement and it is a crime to avoid  it. If your employer (aside from the U.S. Armed Forces) prohibits  you from serving jury duty, they are committing a crime and you can  file a complaint with your...
This isn't a common problem these days; mostly to the advent of  affordable background checks for employers and businesses doing  greater due diligence about checking references of prospective new  hires. As far being "covered under a current policy", each  situation is different and the either...

I never got time off when one of the leaders in any of the companies where I worked died. The boss of the unit where I worked took off to go to the funeral. None of the rest of us went. We had to work. He came back just before closing from a funeral that had ended several hours previously. None of...

Probably not. This is covered by the Family & Medical Leave Act. Your employer does not have to pay you for your time off for your appointments, but you cannot suffer any adverse employment action because of your appointments. If you and your employer are covered by FMLA, you are entitled to up...
I believe that this question applies to the same as when people ask if they can record a phone conversation. The answer is no, not if they are not part of the call themselves. Even if the person owns the phone or pays the phone bill, they still cannot record a conversation they are not a part of....

No. California does not apply an offset to unemployment compensation based on Social Security benefits. You can receive the full amount you qualify for under each program.
