[SIZE=3]Can I claim umemployment benefits if I was terminated whilst I was off work and was on Workers compensation owing to a on-the-job-injury?[/SIZE]

[SIZE=3]I was injured at my job on January 2009 and off the job since as per doctors’ report. I am on workers compensation and presently collecting my weekly checks fromWC. My current sick leave owing to my injury ended on 02-28-2011. I am due for another doctor’s vist on 02-28-2011 at which time doctor will re-examine me and dtermining whether I should or should not return to work and at what capacity.
However, I rceeived a letter from my employer stating that my service has been terminated on 02-8-2011. Reason stated is: “Under applicable Fedral, State, and Company leave policy, you have exhausted the maximum leave time”[/SIZE]

Q1: Will I be able to claim umemployment benefits if upon reporting to work my employer reafirms that I was truly terminated?
Q2: The fact that I was out of work for sifnificant period and could not contribute to my quarterly umemployment insurance will that prevents me from claiming and receiving umemployment benefits?
Q3: And if Q 2 prevents me from claiming unemployment benefits, how was I to contribute if I was injured on the job and off work?

Please let me know. Thank.[/SIZE]

You should contact your state's unemployment office about this.
