Can I get unemployment if I resign from my job?

unemployed_personQ) Can I get unemployment if I resign from my job? I have been on short term disability and now that I’m no longer getting income, they say I’m still employed but from the looks of it I can’t go back to work there. If I quit can I get unemployment because they want fire me or lay me off until 2 years from now if they find me work.

A) In most accessions if you quit your job you may not be able to claim unemployment benefits. In some occasions you may be be able to claim benefits due to unfair treatment and harassment. Please visit your local unemployment office and speak wit a counselor. If you have been laid off you do qualify for unemployment if you have met your state work hour requirements.
