 Unemployment Questions and Answers
About How Benefits and Appeals Work

Welcome to the most popular page on Unemployment-Tips.com  - unemployment questions from employees.

I never answered a question to dash, or to give false hope, but rather to discuss the varied realities of how people do lose their jobs and only then find .. they are not prepared for the reality of how unemployment insurance benefits work.

My hope is those willing to use the Q&As freely, might finally catch on and see benefits are often a matter of what you did to protect yourself and prepare for the possibility of needing to collect UI benefits while you were still an employee.

Winning and keeping benefits is nearly always going to be about fulfilling a quasi legal burden of proof at an unemployment appeal hearing.  

Whether you must fulfill, or rebut the burden to prove good cause for being the moving party to end the employment relationship ..  is dependent on whether you quit your job, or  get fired.


Unemployment Eligibility Questions

There's about 1,200 Q&As here  that still need to be moved to the categories of unemployment questions found just below.

Can You Collect Unemployment When You Quit

The problem with voluntarily quitting a job and expecting to collect benefits is that it is always going to be the employee who must prove the quit was attributable to the work, or employer and the way to fulfill this burden is to exhaust other remedies to preserve the employment.

Can You Get Unemployment When Fired

If you think more people get benefits when fired than when quitting a job, you're right. It's because the unemployed person doesn't have to prove the burden the burden of misconduct, but YOU still need to know how to rebut the burden so it can't be sustained once you're at the hearing

Unemployment Benefits While Attending School

Going to school while collecting unemployment benefits leads to conditional eligibility problems like being determined not to be able and available to work, conducting a bona fide job search, or simply getting caught when not answering the questions truthfully on a continuing claim form .. which is actually a fraud issue.

Questions About Unemployment Appeals and Hearings.

Overpayments and Repaying Unemployment Benefits

I also thought people knew the danger of not winning an unemployment appeal hearing where their eligibility to receive benefits was in question would naturally result in have to repay the amount of benefits received .. back.
