Q) I have sent you an email in the past regarding my present employment. Ive been here for almost 2 years. I worked at another company for 11 years until they shut their doors on July 26th. I started here on July 29th with no gap in employment. This place has been a nightmare since day 1. I have emailed you before explaining what happens here. I have contacted the BBB to come investigate. I just need out of here. I have a clean job performance record, you may contact G&T Conveyor for any information. I cannot quit my job, I have to keep health insurance on myself and my kids. How can I get out of this mess and get unemployment until I find a new job? Help, please
A) I understand that you are in a difficult situation. You are unhappy with your current job, but you cannot quit because you need health insurance for yourself and your kids. You are also worried about how you will be able to support yourself and your family while you are looking for a new job.
I am not able to provide legal advice, but I can offer some general suggestions.
First, you should start looking for a new job as soon as possible. There are many resources available to help you with your job search, such as online job boards, temp agencies, and career counseling services.
Second, you should contact your state’s unemployment office to see if you are eligible for unemployment benefits. In order to qualify for unemployment benefits, you must meet certain eligibility requirements, such as having worked a certain number of hours in the past year and being able to work and available for work.
Third, you should consider talking to a lawyer about your situation. A lawyer may be able to help you understand your legal rights and options, and may be able to represent you in an unemployment benefits claim or a lawsuit against your employer.
I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
