A) If an employer is at fault because of creating or maintaining a hostile working environment for which on employee had to quit, in most states that is grounds to file for unemployment insurance benefits. It is important that you have information to substantiate your claim for benefits. Visit your State Unemployment benefits website and view theirs requirements to qualify for benefits.
