Yes you can. I'd apply for it right away. When you call Unemployment ask them what the waiting time is and state you are pregnant. There is a limit as to how long you can collect unemployment ins.

AnswerUsually to collect unemployment benefits, you must be able to work and actively seeking work. If pregnancy has not yet disabled you, you will qualify for unemployment if you are job hunting.

Yes, if all other aspects of your work history meets the state's requirements, you are considered having lost your job through no fault of your own.

No. You have to be fired. Technically you aren't fired when suspended.

Unemployment benefits are paid by your state, so benefit checks will not be effected by bankruptcy.

Religious nonprofits have the option to not pay unemployment. If they choose not to pay then the employee cannot collect unemployment. If they do pay unemployment to the state then the employee can collect. Nonreligious organizations do have to pay unemployment, but they can pay the state one of two ways. As a state tax rated employer (same as a for profit company) or as a direct reimbursurer. Referenced from www.chooseust.com

Yes, if you lose your job through no fault of your own (as above), you are entitled to unemployment compensation.

You have to be a resident of the state where you apply for unemployment. They will contact the company you were fired from (wherever it was), and it will go on from there.

So long as your company has been paying unemplyment taxes to the state.

No, an employee who was fired for not following the companies policies cannot collect the unemployment benefits. This is because such an employee is usually deemed to have violated such terms.

I wouldn't file ahead of time. I would think positive, and help to keep it from not closing. (Thoughts are power)

In this situation, no. You still have a job just because they change your hours.

The company's going bankrupt should not affect your getting unemployment, The company paid (or should have) unemployment taxes to the state who, in turn, pays the benefits to claimants. Therefore it is the state you look to for relief.

In most, if not all, states you would not qualify because you are in total control of your work environment (as opposed to a worker under control of his job). The company not making any money does not meet the criteria of unemployment.

Questions about whether or not you can collect unemployment are best directed to your local unemployment office. The regulations vary by state.In general, if you were a caregiver working as an employee of a company then you probably can. If you were a caregiver working as an independent contractor then probably not. There's a way independent contractors can participate in the unemployment program, but if you had been doing that you would already know about it and wouldn't have asked your question.If you're a caregiver now, otherwise unemployed, and are wondering if you can still collect unemployment, then you may be able to collect some unemployment benefits. Again, you should contact your local unemployment office (you will almost certainly have to go in rather than calling) for details.
