child care reasons
(Belleville Il Usa)
I have been working midnights for five years I have been trying to get off this shift for the last year it has become a nightmare to get child care for my 6 year old son. I have a 19 year old daughter who was watching him but she just went to the Navy & was recently deployed. I have tried to find a diffrent shift in my department & none have become available its a very small department. I have also applied for more than 50 positions with in the hospital & nothing. I dont know how much longer I will be avaiable to work this shift but I am a great employee & just dont want to get fired would rather leave on good terms. If I do quite & show where I have applied for other positions w company will I be able to get unemployment?...Please help...
You need to address the need for a shift change with the employer and tell them your dilemma.
At least that's what I would do.
And before you do that .. take the time and see if you can find a Illinois precedent decision which would support that quitting for your reason would be with good cause.Illinois Unemployment Law Handbook
