Am I eligible for unemployment after I resigned due to pregnancy?
This is the resignation letter I gave my employer today.
Dear Ms. **Name deleted**:
I would like to inform you that I am resigning from my position as Patient Coordinator for **company name deleted**.
Thank you for the opportunities for professional and personal development that you have provided me during the last seven months. I have enjoyed working for **** and appreciate the support provided me during my tenure with the company. However, as per our conversation today, I asked you if you would give me a chance to work in the office opposed to working in the field. You denied my proposal because no work was available at the time. Therefore due to pregnancy, I can not keep exposing myself to the high risk of driving in traffic most of the time. I would also like to get reimbursed for all my vacation time available.
If I can be of any help during this transition, please let me know.
She gave me the option to leave immediately which I took and left. I applied today for unemployment i want to know what is the possibility to get it.
Given your letter doesn't include any mention of being ordered not to drive by a doctor, I think you can expect to be denied unemployment.
Without your reason being deemed medically necessary, the quit is now for a personal reason, which may be good cause to you, but not to an unemployment department who must give and deny benefits funded by employer taxes and based on law.
A medical self diagnosis of a real condition would generally have the same result.
In addition, even when a person has the force of medical advice behind them, they have options to explore and exhaust all reasonable alternatives, before quitting, to fulfill the burden of having good cause to quit
fulfill the burden of having good cause to quit .. under nearly all circumstances including those of quitting due to health reasons.
