I live in nys and I worked a job for less than 90 days. A job in the beauty industry. I was never told by the employer that I had to be available at all times. 60 days into my employment I decided to take on Esthetics school part time and received a student loan. I went to the manager and explained that I was going to school and it was a flexible part time schedule She simply said to me that she could not accommodate me in any way That I simply had to be available period. After trying to come up with a schedule and to negotiate with her she still said no. It literally brought me to tears for the first time in my life I was so stressed and upset because now I had to resign because I started school I could not quit. Also the school was work related so I just did not understand why she refused me and would not meet me half way. So I applied for unemployment to get me by. I have been actively looking while going to school and hope to work soon because I actually Do want to work. I was just sent a letter after a month of receiving unemployment to verify that I in fact quit. What do I do now?
I guess I’m confused. What did the letter from unemployment say?
I assume they stopped benefits .. or you probably wouldn’t be here.
The resource you need now is the NY precedent decisions to see if there is a way to argue effectively that you quit the job with good cause.
