 I am enrolled as a nursing student. Class is getting more difficult, will I qualify for unemployment if I quit my job?

Q) I am enrolled full-time in college as a nursing student. I am currently working 20 hours a week. It is getting more difficult for me to keep up with school and work. Will I qualify for unemployment if I quit my 20 hour a week job? Tanya

A) In your situation you will not qualify for unemployment insurance benefits if you quit your job. In most cases, if you quit voluntarily, you are not eligible for these benefits. However, if you resign for good cause you may be able to collect unemployment benefits. Quitting your job because of school work is not a good cause to qualify for unemployment benefits. In general, having good cause for resigning means there are unsolvable problems with the work, which leave an employee with no other options beyond quitting. Additionally, it needs to be documented that the employer was made aware of the situation, and made no effort to rectify it.

Some examples of good cause are:

Unsafe work conditions
Lack of payment
Change in job duties
Discrimination
Harassment

  1. Hello.

    My company is currently hiring and I was wondering how I may go about sending a job posting.

    We are looking for staff with reliable vehicles that can hold 3 individuals with developmental disabilities. They must pass a DOJ background check with Community Care Licensing. We teach life skills, vocational skills, communication, money management, socialization in a completely community based setting. We pay $12/hour and offer a mileage reimbursement of 53 cents /mile that one of our individuals are in the vehicle. Our greatest needs are in Temecula, Murrieta and Menifee; however if a person is willing to work at any of those locations we can get them started. After background checks are completed the staff attend 4 days of paid training in Rancho Cucamonga at our state office followed by a day to familiarize themselves with our program before heading into the field with their individuals for field training.

    If you have any questions or would like me to send the Now Hiring flyer, please let me know.

    Many thanks,

    Jennie Hurley
    Program Director
