Due to accepting stimulus funds, Wisconsin has amended their law concerning quitting for personally compelling reasons, but I do not know the details yet.
But even under the best of circumstances, the reason you gave for quitting is not compelling enough to allow benefits .. because it’s a choice and not a reason that leaves you with no alternatives.
It is never the company that denies benefits. It is the state that denies. If it’s hard to get benefits from a company it’s probably because they have all their ducks in a row and actually understand how unemployment works and adhere to a strict policy of having the proper documentation .. and know how to present their information.
