I am currently working full time, but want to take a class that would require me to miss work for six weeks.

unemployed_personQ) I am currently working full time, but want to take a class that would require me to miss work for six weeks. My employer is saying that is time, and also that I would be able to collect unemployment during that six week period, as I would not be working. Is this true???

A) I if you voluntarily decide not to work, you cannot claim unemployment insurance benefits. Unemployment insurance is for people who are looking, and available, for work. If you can’t prove to your state’s unemployment department that your class schedule won’t interfere with your job hunt, you may lose your right to unemployment compensation.
