new york - Can I quit if I have been passed over for promotions and they won't give me a raise and collect unemployment?
I want to quit my job because it's going no where I was passed over for 2 promotions or lateral movement for another position.
I was told the first time I didn't show interest. So the second time we had PDP personal development program and I excelled in that program for the opening position, but yet again, I was passed over even though I did what they asked.
She keeps promising there's room for growth and I haven't seen one empty promises.
So I resorted to ask for a raise and I was also denied for that too.
Is it possible for me to quit and look for another job, maybe in a different field?
I'm just tempted to quit because they keep screwing me over. I haven't gotten a raise in 2 years. So I decided to ask here but i might end up doing it.Answer:
Given what you have told me here .. if you quit to move to a different field because you have been passed over for promotions and was not given a raise when you asked for one, you will be denied unemployment benefits .. so you will have to move forward if you choose to quit without the aid of benefits.
