Q) Hi. My husband works in a hostile environment where his boss told him he’s “on the chopping block “. Can he quit this job and receive UI benefits while he looks for another job?
Thank you for your answer.
A) A worker who voluntarily leaves employment must have a good reason for quitting to qualify for unemployment benefits. For example, if a worker quits because of a hostile work environment that her employer failed to correct, she may qualify for unemployment benefits.
For example, if a worker quits because of a hostile work environment that her employer failed to correct, she may qualify for unemployment benefits. Good cause could also be for compelling personal reasons. In many states, an employee who quits because of a medical condition or disability may qualify for unemployment benefits. An employee may also qualify if she quits because of domestic violence situations. An employee who quits to care for a sick family member may qualify for benefits as well. http://smallbusiness.chron.com/voluntarily-quitting-unemployment-benefits-11998.html
