i was let go due change of management.., May I apply for unemployment?

Q) i was let go due change of management from a 25-30 hrs week job I had for 18 Months, May I apply for unemployment?

A) If you are laid off from a job due to downsizing, your employer closes their doors, or for any number of reasons you are no longer employed through no fault of your own, you are more than likely eligible for unemployment insurance benefits. You do need to have worked the required mandatory hours required by your state. However, if you quit your job or you are fired for just cause, you may not be able to collect benefits.

  1. If you are seeking unemployment insurance benefits because you were fired you may not qualify if you were found to be at fault. You must be out of work through no fault of your own. Workers who are laid off for economic reasons due to a plant closing, a reduction-in-force (RIF), or because of lack of work, for example are eligible for unemployment benefits. But employees who are fired are not always eligible for unemployment benefits if it was due to a fault on their part. If you can prove that you were fired for no foult of your own you my qualify for unemployment insurance benefit.
