Can I receive unemployment benefits if my vehicle broke down?

4 posts in this topic

I recently was terminated from my job because my vehicle broke down and I did not have any alternate transportation to the job site. In my opinion, this is beyond my control? Can I claim Unemployment benefits because of this?

\State is Ohio

No.

 

You were terminated because you didn't show up for work.

Sure. But your employer has no obligation to accept your excuse.

You can certainly file a claim and I suggest you do so ASAP to protect your benefits.

 

You might qualify but I can't guarantee it.

Despite your use of a question mark, this sentence is not a question.  If you intended a question, I cannot discern what you intended to ask.  However, maintaining your vehicle such that it does not break down most certainly is within your control.

You obviously can apply, but no one here will be able to know whether you'll receive them.

It is unlikely as it isn't a reason attributable to your employer, but you should still apply. Sometimes, the state grants benefits for unorthodox reasons. You will have to prove you do have reliable transportation such that you are able to actively seek work.
