There are Good Reasons to Quit Your Job .. and Collect Unemployment Benefits

There are good cause reasons to quit your job.

But, there are  few good excuses for not being able to prove you exhausted efforts to preserve your job until a point comes when another reasonable person, under similar circumstance, would also see further efforts would be futile.

You're the one who must see .. realize .. the cause for a voluntarily quitting is attributable to the work, or the employer in unemployment laws.

To quit a job .. and file for unemployment benefits, means you accept your burden.   This is the responsibility of being the moving party and it means you think you can prove and sustain your reasoning for quitting as not being your fault.

When an employee voluntarily quits, or when an employer fires an employee, for purposes of unemployment insurance law, which do in fact control when benefits are paid, or denied,  there will be questions meant to determine if fulfilled a burden of trying to maintain and preserve the employment relationship.

All because when you quit your job a involve the UI dept. you are the moving party you have to prove more than the quit being for good cause because you made efforts which allowed the employer to reasonably correct some situation which might of reasonably allowed you to continue in the employment.  

At least this if the point of questions to make an initial determination  based upon the available information at the deadline for the adjudication of your claim.

It's the unemployment appeal process, however, where you will be expected to sustain that burden of proof by providing full and complete information via testimony and evidence.

I'll give you this, there are some personal good cause reasons in some state unemployment law and others that do not statutorily  require attribution to the employer for good cause to be found.  

However, this doesn't mean once you read some precedents you will not see it's sometimes necessary to prove you tried to work with an employer to meet and fulfill a  "necessitous and compelling reason" to quit for what is generally thought of as a personal good cause to quit a job.

But then quitting and unemployment is rarely just a yes, or no answer, because with unemployment insurance benefits,  the devil is in the details surrounding the cause to move first and end a job.

After You Quit Your Job

Before you quit, but only because the primary reasons people regularly fail to collect unemployment benefits after a voluntary quit .. is because they cannot prove what efforts they exhausted to preserve their job and show they were desirous of remaining employed.

Seeing efforts you might not be aware of is what the  Q&As about quitting a job were for.

To explain the depth of your unemployment burden of proof that you quit and it was attributable to the work, or the employer you may have to venture outside unemployment law and see your position from a different perspective of employment law and your rights in the workplace and use them in your efforts to protect yourself and preserve your employment.

Sorry, I know some of you don't want to hear this, but honestly, there is no room in the workplace for remaining a victim .. because they rarely get unemployment benefits because UIB's are often the last resort.
