Justification in quitting your job which might be persuasive to an Unemployment Insurance Appeals panel would include:
Thank you for answering to the best of your ability. However, I'm not quite satisfied by your answer. I have expessed in my statement that I have a new Mananger that has made decisions in the sales process that I don't agree with, unethical actions that effect my moral standards along with others. He has added duties that were never required of me before, such as Sell "After Sale Options" such as warranties, gap insurance and points on the rate, all these after selling is suppose to be sold by the Finance Manager. This process makes me responsible of lying to customers, telling them that their credit is not great and the banks are giving you a higher rate and recommend that you get extended warranties and gap insurance to satisfy the banks.
A car salesman job is to only focus on selling the vehicle only. This new Manager is also forcing us to do telemarketing calls which was never in my job description when I was hired. There is a department that handles "Business Development" or (B.D.C.). With all these changes and increase of hours require of us to work , I make less money that I ever did.
Are you telling me that with all this, I do not have a solid reason to resign and be covered by unempoyment insurance? Do I need to work in these slave like conditions?
While I strive to give you an accurate and applicable answer to your question, and if I can possibly suggest an avenue by which you might have a successful legal outcome I will, please understand that I don’t have the ability to provide you with favorable law, or facts, if they do not exist. As you read my answer to your question, I ask you to please not shoot, or disparage, the messenger.
You stated:I have expensed in my statement that I have a new Mananger that has made decisions in the sales process that I don't agree with, unethical actions that effect my moral standards along with others. Under the law, I'm sorry, but this is a non-issue. It has no effect on your eligibility for unemployment. This is essentially "office politics" and does not impact on justification for quitting your job as far as unemployment benefits are concerned.
