You could fight it, but you'll probably lose. Since you've failed the blood test then you zapped yourself! Drugs and work just don't mix. Workmen's Comp is only there when you've had a genuine accident. If you were doing drugs (even Marijuana) WCB has a good case NOT to pay you. If you were on a cold medication and you failed a blood test then you might have had a chance. Marcy

Can you collect workmens compensation and unemployment at the same time?

Workman Comp and UnemploymentNot in the State of Michigan. Not sure about other states, but I highly doubt you can collect both at the same time anywhere. Addendum:Think about it.... No state in the Union (at least for now) would even entertain a notion of paying unemployment to someone collecting workman's comp insurance. To collect unemployment you must be able to work and looking for work. If you're able to work, you would no longer be covered under Workman's Comp.
