I was being yelled at.. can I collect unemployment?

Q) I quit my job because I was lied to about my wages among other things from the person who hired me. I was being yelled at from a fellow employee who claimed to be manager can I collect unemployment?

A) Generally, if you quit your job, you are not eligible for unemployment. You receive unemployment when you are laid off due to lack of work. If you quit, that’s voluntary on your part. However, if you are forced to quit because of hostile working conditions, you may still qualify for benefits. Under the legal concept of “constructive discharge,” an employee who is forced to quit is treated as if he or she was fired — and will be eligible to collect unemployment. https://www.employmentlawfirms.com/resources/employment/unemployment/getting-unemployment-after-quitting-due-to-discrimination
