Can you go to school full time and get unemployment in Tx?
I have worked in the same field for 12 years, and there are currently NO jobs available in that field where I live. I can't afford to move elsewhere at this time either. Long story short, I do not know from day to day if I will still have a job. My boss was arrested 2 weeks ago and it looks like he will be going to jail. No one knows what will happen to the business. We all believe is dangerous, and have believed this for some time. I have my full GI bill to go to school. I would love to go back to school full time, but cannot afford to unless I get unemployment. Am I allowed to quit since even the police have deemed him as dangerous, enroll in school full time, and get unemployment? Or if I lose my job due to him will I be able to get unemployment and be a full-time student? I just don't want to be in a lose-lose situation.
I'd hang loose for a bit before I quit.
Since you do have options for using your GI bill call the Texas employment department and ask about training benefits.
School can always affect whether you get and or can retain unemployment benefits.
Full-time school would require being approved for training benefits, so I think that's where you should start before you up and quit .. if your boss is a "physical danger" to you it could be with good cause. If it is a moral issue, it could be with good cause.
Here's the TX precedent manual
Your potential issues as I see it are a Voluntary quit w/ good cause and Able and Available due to full time attendance at school.
