No longer a fit for for type work. If I quit, would I be eligible for unemploymen

unemployed_personQ) Eligible if you quit your job? I am a teacher and due to surgeries, I have a weak immune system. I am around sick students and am at a health risk at my job. I am no longer a fit for this type of work. If I quit, would I be eligible for unemployment compensation?

A) You cannot collect unemployment benefits if you are physically unable to work. You may want to consider applying for disability benefits.

  1. In most cases, if you quit your job you are not eligible for unemployment. However, if you left for a good reason such as not being paid, an unsafe or unhealthy work environment, a change in your job responsibilities, discrimination, health and safety risks on the job, or some types of family emergencies you may qualify for unemployment benefits.

  1. Apparently the UE office in Asheboro, NC had moved yet they have not updated their new address on this website. Apparently they close at 12pm each Wednesday but I don’t see that info anywhere either. A local police officer tried helping me find the office today and he too did not know it moved or where to. He was kind enough to call someone and get the new address for me. I am unable to find a website for them as well. I am an employer attempting to contact them to discuss employment opportunities.
