Can I Receive Benefits If I Quit Or I Am Fired?

When there is a separation issue, fact finding is obtained from both the individual and the employer to determine eligibility for benefits. The decision is made based on unemployment insurance law, which provides the guidelines to decide whether or not the individual should be disqualified. If the individual quit, was it for good cause connected to the work? If the individual was discharged, was it based on misconduct connected to the work?
