Can you get unemployment if you quit your job due to lack of work?
My boyfriend got layed off and got approved for unemployment but in two weeks he found a job. He gets paid flat rate and he is not making hours at all. Can he quit due to lack of work and get unemployment?
I wouldn't do it...If he is not working full-time and making less than his established weekly benefit amount he should just continue to file for "Partial unemployment benefits".
If he quits the new job he'll raise an issue for himself and would need to prove to the state that he quit for good cause. It would be a "refusal of suitable work" issue and he would need to check his states statutes about this issue because this like everything is controlled by the state.
