That's the million dollar question and in my mind what would solely decide his fate one way or another.

The worst part of this is a person with 3 duis has a license. 3 duis should be a lengthy prison sentence.

Default Thanks Labonte18

Yes, diabetics like me can still work because we are on oral medication. I had just been to my doctors appt. 3 weeks before this accident. After the accident I went back to her and in her office my blood sugar dropped to 30, and she immediately had me cut the dosage she gave me in half. The company said I was driving unprofessional because I didn't slow down or stop. Mind you I have been a perfect driver for 3 years with this company and even got awards. They totally disregarded what the hospital said and said they reviewed the video and I was awake and didn't stop. They couldn't understand why I never saw the vehicle in front or remember it. Just said the cop cited you therefore it was your fault. I am just devastated by this!! I will fight this and hope unemployment takes this all in to account. My eyes might have been open to the company but I was not coherent. Thanks for understanding and your help!!

If you could get a letter from your doctor stating what you've just written here, I think you'd have a very good case. Without it, or without a doctor testifying for you, I'd guess you've got a pretty slim chance.

Try to get a statement from your doc. She doesn't have to say (and probably won't, for liability concerns) that the med change caused the accident, but if she stated that she changed your meds, then adjusted them, that would be a start. If she further stated that the med change could have resulted in the accident, you should be home free.

I really don't think anything else, including the medical condition matters. When the police issued a citation, and assign fault for the accident, it's clearly solid grounds for dismissal for cause, and not likely that UI would be granted even on appeal.

So the unemployment insurance premiums that your various employers have paid into the system are essentially useless, unless you were a perfect employee, and never made a mistake? I've never collected UI, so I'm just asking.

Again, you need to ask in the Unemployment section. There's people far smarter than I about how it works. I think you have a chance.. But, what I think doesn't really matter.

Yes.. That's one of the intents of the program. It is not for people who quit for no good reason, people who are fired for cause. The only way you are pretty much guaranteed to collect is if you are laid off.

I've been unemployed for about 3 days in my life. Been good, and been lucky. Got laid off in '09, picked up another job the next day. It was a miserable job.. I lasted about 6 months there before walking out. Had already lined up to go full time/contractor with a company I had been part time with for 5 years.. We mutually ended that contract in '13 and I was terrified, because there was no net there for me. Self employed it's hard to get UI. But, that day, there was a good fit job posting.. Interviewed the next day, started the day after that. Been there since.

The company that laid me off in '09, I had been with them 10 years. They gave a nice severance, but of course, had to sign the 'no disparagement' thing.. They wouldn't fight UI, I wouldn't bad mouth them.

Yes they knew I was diabetic on oral medications and was required to do a CDL physical every year

The Unemployment premiums that other jobs and this job paid into is useless. I was a perfect employee for 3 years and even got awards, but this one incident caused me to get fired, which I do understand, but not able to claim unemployment makes no sense to me.
