Q) I am enrolled full-time in college as a nursing student. I am currently working 20 hours a week. It is getting more difficult for me to keep up with school and work. Will I qualify for unemployment if I quit my 20 hour a week job? Tanya
A) In your situation you will not qualify for unemployment insurance benefits if you quit your job. In most cases, if you quit voluntarily, you are not eligible for these benefits. However, if you resign for good cause you may be able to collect unemployment benefits. Quitting your job because of school work is not a good cause to qualify for unemployment benefits. In general, having good cause for resigning means there are unsolvable problems with the work, which leave an employee with no other options beyond quitting. Additionally, it needs to be documented that the employer was made aware of the situation, and made no effort to rectify it.
Some examples of good cause are:
Unsafe work conditions
Lack of payment
Change in job duties
