Can I quit my job to move and live with my wife and qualify for benefits
My wife was recently offered and accepted a job in California. I plan to quit my job and move to be with her until I can find another job can I collect unemployment insurance?
I have been asked this question the most I believe out of all unemployment topics. This is a fairly simple hearing type to explain. Quitting a job by most states view must be for a compelling reason, something that would compel an average person in the same situation to make a similar choice.
In this case, the person quitting would be doing so for a reason completely unrelated to the employer. The reason for quitting would be due to personal reasons. This would not be considered reasonable and good cause for quitting when it comes to unemployment benefits which would mean you would not qualify.
