I was laid off telecom job of 4 years, accepted another contract job. Texas resident
I was laid off a telecom job of 4 years, accepted another contract job.
I live in Texas and filed for unemployment benefits and will receive my benefits for at least 26 weeks. I am on my 2nd week of new contract job and am worried I might be let go because I don't have the experience level.
Although I filed for unemployment benefits and was accepted I have not filed for my first check yet. I received a severance of 2 weeks and this is my last week of severance. It's been about 2.5 weeks since I filed. Can I quit this contract job after 2 weeks and then file for my first unemployment check without having to contact Texas Workforce Commission?
