Questions and Answers About Quitting and Unemployment Benefits Being Approved

People will always quit their jobs for a mountain of different reasons and then ask questions.  

But most reasons for quitting and unemployment, if you're going to evaluate for purposes of collecting unemployment benefits, will lead you back to details about what happened in the workplace and what motivated someone to quit their job.

And then comes the big question I always have to ask when unemployment benefits and good cause are combined in the same sentence.

What did you do prior to quitting to correct the situation, and can you prove your efforts were reasonable and actually made to preserve the employment?  

By now, I know for a fact, this is the main element of the burden of proof when quitting people fail on ..  fulfilling the burden prior to quitting a job.  




Documenting reasonable efforts to preserve your job is how you build a case that may attribute the fault for to quit with good cause.  It should go without saying .. your reason must also be "reasonable".

Not being able to fulfill the quasi legal burden at an unemployment appeal hearing is likely responsible for the myth it's impossible to get unemployment benefits after quitting a job.

Voluntary quits are routinely appealed by employers and not because they can prove you quit without good cause .. but because they know most people can't prove they did quit WITH good cause.

As an at-will employee you may not feel like you're exactly in a power position, to ensure you have good cause, but if you think you may need benefits to survive, it's time to put aside your feelings .. because they do no matter to those giving and denying unemployment benefits .. aka your state unemployment department.
