Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.I'm sorry to hear about your situation and hope I can help.Unfortunately, it would be difficult for you to quit and be able to collect unemployment.In order to justify a voluntary quit you need to have left your employment for a reason that would make a reasonable person in the same circumstances also leave his or her job.For instance, if you can point to the fact that you are being targeted and discriminated against on the basis of your age that would be typically be a sufficient 'good cause' for you to leave your employment.However, if you just don't like the fact that you're being written up for things that would not be enough for you to collect unemployment benefits.
Additionally, you would need to demonstrate that you attempted to resolve the issue with your employer prior to leaving your employment. For instance, it would be good if you voiced your concerns with your employer about being written up, especially if you believe that it has to do with your age.You can read more about establishing 'good cause' for a voluntary quit online here:http://www.edd.ca.gov/uibdg/Voluntary_Quit_VQ_5.htmI sincerely XXXXX XXXXX had better news to give you, but I hope you appreciate a direct and honest answer to your question.
Thanks, I re read this morning and think I understand what I should do.
