  1. what if you were physically fit to work, but working in that particular field was not a good idea health-wise. Would you then be eligible for unemployment while you sought out more appropriate jobs?

  2. 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.
