I am afraid if I file for unemployment I will lose my job. Is that possible?
From Ohio Department of Job and Family Services:
"Establishing Eligibility for Unemployment Compensation Benefits
How do I establish eligibility?
There are two types of requirements. The first type of requirement is monetary (weeks and wages). The applicant must meet all of the following:
- Be unemployed at the time of filing
- Have at least 20 qualifying weeks of covered employment in the base period
- Earn an average weekly wage of at least $230.00 (this amount changes each year)"
