I was not fired but felt I had to quit my job. It was becoming a very unsafe environment. Is there any help.

Q) So I was not fired by not fault of my own but I felt I had no choice but to quit my job of ten years. It was becoming a very unsafe environment both mentally and physically on my health. Is there anyway the state can help me?

A) You can get unemployment benefits if you quit your job because of unsafe working conditions.

Examples of job-related reasons

  • Unsafe or unhealthy working conditions, including dangerous working conditions or equipment;
  • A transfer to unsuitable work (a different kind of job that is not right for you
  • An employer changes the job, such as giving you fewer hours (so you are not full -time anymore), paying you less than before, or not paying you the minimum wage. The change must be permanent, not just for a short time; or
  • Unlawful discrimination or harassment, including sexual, racial, or other unreasonable harassment. Source: https://www.masslegalhelp.org/employment-unemployment/ui-if-quit
