Do you qualify for unemployment?

Obtaining unemployment after you've lost your job isn't always easy. As a general rule, you must be unemployed through no fault of your own. However, you may also qualify if you:

  • Were fired for a misconduct issue
  • Were fired by your previous employer
  • Quit your job because of policy changes

The state assesses these types of issues and other niche situations on a case-by-case basis, so you'll want to work with an attorney who can help you determine your eligibility. Speak to attorney Collins today if you have a question about eligibility.
