I quit my job, took a new job, was fired within 2 weeks can I get unemployment .in Michigan?
As I stated I quit a job I had been at for 2.5 years for a better paying job. I was Fired after (2) weeks.
Can I collect unemployment from the job I quit in the state of Michigan. I felt they were going to fire me any way so I found a new job and quit before they could fire me…
You gave two different reasons for quitting.
1. To accept a better paying job. 2. You found another job because you thought you were going to be fired.
Reason number 2 would disqualify you unless you quit because of a situation that you could prove was for good cause…fear of being fired for a valid reason does not create good cause for quitting to avoid being fired.
Regardless, you were fired from job # 2. Since all the states determine eligibility for unemployment on the the most recent work…you would first need to be found eligible regarding the reason you were fired.
