Can I Collect Benefits If I Quit My Job?

If you voluntarily left your job without good cause, attributable to your employer, you are generally not eligible for benefits. It is your burden to prove that there was good cause for leaving. When applying for benefits, after quitting a job, you will be scheduled to attend a pre­determination hearing to establish whether you had good cause for leaving. Your employer will be notified of this hearing and will be invited to attend or to send in a written statement.

For good cause to be attributable to the employer, it must relate to the wages, hours, or working conditions of the job. Regardless of the cause, in most cases, good cause attributable to the employer may only be found if you took reasonable steps to inform your employer of your dissatisfaction and sought to remedy the problem before you left.
