Is A Claimant Eligible For Benefits If He Or She Quit Or Was Terminated?

If you quit, you may be eligible to draw benefits if you can show that you quit for a valid work­connected reason, such as a material change in working conditions, material change in working agreement, non­payment for your work and similar reasons. You will not be able to draw benefits if your reason for quitting was personal, even though the personal reason was a good or compelling reason.

If you were fired from your job, you will not be able to draw benefits if your former employer can show that you were fired for failure to follow rules, orders or instructions of your employer or you were fired for misconduct on the job.
