If Laid Off, May The Applicant Be Eligible For Benefits?

An applicant's unemployment must not be his/her fault. If laid off due to a "lack of work" (for example, the job was abolished, the business closed, or the plant shut down), there is no question that the applicant did not cause the unemployment. The monetary requirements also must be met to qualify for unemployment benefits.
