    I am going to be going on maternity leave in March for 8 to 12 weeks without pay from my job. Am I allowed to claim unemployment during those times of being out of work without pay? Thanks!

      You will not be eligible since unemployment insurance is only extended to those who become unemployed due to involuntary reasons.

  2. A letter containing the number of weeks I can draw unemployment and how much per week says:
