Quitting job in Michigan because of forced transfer which is an excessive distance to school.
I work at a store in Michigan. The store I was working at was about a 30 minute drive from my house. I was told on Friday that I was being transferred to another store and to report there on Monday. The new store is about 45minutes - hour drive from my house and just under 50 miles away from my original store. I requested a transfer closer to my house and was denied. I am a full time college student and my school is 60-70 miles away from the new store but only 20-30 miles from my first store. I worked from April til now and made over $10,000. If I quit because of the FORCED transfer will I be able to collect unemployment benefits. I tried to resolve the situation but they refused to transfer me.
You will most likely not receive benefits. I'm not going to go looking for mileage limitation that may present good cause in Michigan .. because of the reason you stated the transfer is not acceptable to you.
"I am a full time college student and my school is 60-70 miles away from the new store but only 20-30 miles from my first store."
Quitting because the new store is too far away from school will be disqualifying every time. In fact giving up work because it is inconvenient due to going to school is a futile game.
Heck, you can't even refuse work while on unemployment because it would interfere with school.
