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

  1. I have not worked in nine years. I keep getting letters from Michigan Dept of Labor saying they are offering me more unemployment money, You can’t go to their office, it seems to be closed, you can’t talk to anyone on the phone, you just get a recording telling you to go online and appeal to get more benefits.
    I mailed in and emailed in and faxed in fraud reports, I get back a nice letter telling me how to file to get more benefits.
    Now I get a 1099 for $5,500.00 that I am supposed to pay tax on.
    So I sent another fraud report and today I get a letter from them saying I am approved for more benefits and how to appeal their decision and try to get een more benefits.
    I have received no money from them, I asked where they were sending the money, no reply. They have my address to send me info on getting more benefits, so where are they sending the money?
    China? Russia? This is pure insanity.
