Can I get unemployment if I resign from my job?

unemployed_personQ) Can I get unemployment if I resign from my job? I have been on short term disability and now that I’m no longer getting income, they say I’m still employed but from the looks of it I can’t go back to work there. If I quit can I get unemployment because they want fire me or lay me off until 2 years from now if they find me work.

A) It depends on the reason why you are resigning. If you are resigning for good cause, such as because of a hostile work environment or because your employer has violated your rights, you may be eligible for unemployment benefits. However, if you are resigning for no good cause, such as because you found a better job or because you are simply tired of your current job, you will not be eligible for unemployment benefits.

In your case, it sounds like you are resigning because you are unable to go back to work due to your disability. This may be considered good cause for resigning, and you may be eligible for unemployment benefits. However, it is important to speak with an unemployment lawyer in your state to get specific advice on your situation.

Here are some things to keep in mind when deciding whether or not to resign:

  • The reason for your resignation. If you are resigning for good cause, you are more likely to be eligible for unemployment benefits.
  • Your state’s unemployment laws. The eligibility requirements for unemployment benefits vary from state to state.
  • Your financial situation. If you are unable to find a new job right away, unemployment benefits can help you to make ends meet.

If you are considering resigning from your job, it is important to weigh all of your options carefully. Resigning can have a negative impact on your future employment prospects, so it is important to make sure that you are making the right decision.

In most accessions if you quit your job you may not be able to claim unemployment benefits. In some occasions you may be able to claim benefits due to unfair treatment and harassment. Please visit your local unemployment office and speak wit a counselor. If you have been laid off you do qualify for unemployment if you have met your state work hour requirements.
