I was driving two hours to work for two years and had to quit. Do I qualify for unemployment?

unemployed_personQ) I have been working in New Bern N C for the past two years. I was driving almost two hours each way to work each day. I did it for two years. Working 8 to 12 hours a day plus the drive time really affected my health. I had to quit my job because of it.I have never drawn unemployment,I am 53 years old. I am currently searching for employment.I have been without work since January.Do I qualify for unemployment?

A) Unfortunately you would not qualify for unemployment because of quitting due to long drive to work. In most accessions if you quit your job you may not be able to claim unemployment benefits. In some occasions you may be be able to claim benefits due to unfair treatment and 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
