When moving what documentation would I need to collect benefits?
Next month I will be moving from Wisconsin to North Carolina. I will have to quit my job because of this.
I have asked my company if I can work online from home in order to stay employed, but they have denied that request.
So I figure I should be fine since I am saying I would still work for them if they would allow me too, but they will not.
I will not have a job right away in NC and I would like to collect benefits.
Do I need to prove I have moved first in order to win my case? What kind of documents would I need to win a case, just in case my employer fights this?
I don't share your confidence that you would get benefits based on not being allowed to work online ... so I went looking for something else and had to make an assumption that the need for the move is "compelling" .. and yes .. this would need to be proven regardless of whether you made every effort to preserve the employment.
I believe I've mentioned that some states have changed their statutes when it comes to moving to relocate with a spouse or other compelling family reasons.
I couldn't find mention of it at the LIRC
except to find information to confirm that without a change .. you most likely couldn't get benefits.
But I did find what I was looking for at Recovery.gov
You'll want to click the link the says Wisconsin Two-Thirds Incentive Payment. Be patient .. it took a long time to load.
