Am I entitled to unemployment benefits if I was laid off but my employer claims that I was not able and willing to do work? Posted on July 14, 2011

I live in Illinois and was put on light duty by my doctor. I worked half a day on light duty then on same day employer came to me during my shift and told me I was laid off due to they have no work for me to do. I applied for unemployment and was denied by employer. They said I was not able and willing to work, but I am able, willing and available for work. I am now scheduled a hearing. Do you think I will be approved for unemployment benefits.
