Q) I’ve been working at my job For 2 months now. Now they are sayin I have to use my own personal vehicle to drive to all of our facilities. No where in my job description does it say I have to use my personal vehicle. So I was wondering if I can refuse and collect unemployment until I find another job.
A) 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.
