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.

First, find out who was moving party and if they can prove the quit was for good cause.  At least if based upon the available information at the deadline for the initial determination of benefits is made.

It's the unemployment appeal process, however, where you will be expected to sustain that burden of proof.

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

However, this doesn't mean you never have to prove it is an employer's fault to meet the phrase "necessitous and compelling" .

But then quitting and unemployment is not a yes, or no answer often .. because the devil is in the details and sometimes, those are hard to comprehend if you've never read any unemployment cases that interpret what the laws actually meant.

Whens the Best Time to Ask Questions About Unemployment - Before Or
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.
