Hello, My name isXXXXX am a licensed attorney, and my goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
Can you tell me if you have reason to believe that you are being subject to this treatment by your boss due to discrimination based on a protected characteristic (such as race, gender, national origin, ethnicity, or age)?
Also, can you tell me what question you have regarding your situation? (JustAnswer experts cannot 'tell you what to do' as that would definitely constitute legal advice not legal information).
My question does not involve any of the protected characteristics you mention above. My question is: can I quit my job but receive unemployment insurance? I have a doctor, a psychiatrist, who has been helping me with the stress. He is willing to write a letter for me stating this job is injurious to my mental and physical health.
If I quit should I present my doctor's letter to my employer or only to the Unemployment Department upon requesting unemployment? I would think showing my employer the doctor's letter may be detrimental to me rather than helpful. Do you agree?
Ok. Thank you very much for your help. You have answered my questions and I will check out the website you gave me.
Have a good night!
