I resigned my salaried position, am I eligible for unemployment?

unemployed_personQ) I recently was requested to accept a new job description that required more duties beyond the original position. I resigned my salaried position and have been out of work for 2 months am I eligible for unemployment compensation.

A) It depends on your state’s laws. In some states, you may be eligible for unemployment benefits if you resign your job due to a change in job duties. In other states, you may not be eligible.

To find out if you are eligible for unemployment benefits in your state, you should contact your state’s unemployment agency. You can find the contact information for your state’s unemployment agency on the website of the U.S. Department of Labor.

When you contact your state’s unemployment agency, you will need to provide information about your employment history, your earnings, and the reason you resigned from your job. The unemployment agency will then determine if you are eligible for benefits.

If you are eligible for unemployment benefits, you will receive a weekly benefit payment. The amount of your benefit payment will depend on your earnings and the state you live in.

You can receive unemployment benefits for up to 26 weeks in most states. However, the length of time you can receive benefits may be shorter if you have not worked for a long time or if you have a high income.

If you resigned from your job due to a change in job duties, you should contact your state’s unemployment agency to find out if you are eligible for benefits.

In most cases, if you quit your job you are not eligible for unemployment. However, if you left for a good reason such as not being paid, an unsafe or unhealthy work environment, a change in your job responsibilities, discrimination, health and safety risks on the job, or some types of family emergencies you may qualify for unemployment benefits.
