Thank you for the opportunity to answer your question. I am sending this answer to you only a few minutes after you submitted your question.
I'm sorry to hear about the situation. Unfortunately, a schedule change isn't usually enough to quit a job and collect unemployment
. Circumstances have to be pretty serious for an employee to be able to quit a job and remain eligible for unemployment. The vast majority of employees who quit voluntarily, including employees who quit due to a schedule change, which be ineligible for benefits. Seniority, favoritism
, or nepotism doesn't change that, though they're all three immoral and unprofessional behaviors by an employer. However, an exceptions can apply in special circumstances, such as when the employer is engaging in discrimination
based on age, race, gender, disability, etc. My job here is to provide accurate information about the law. Providing bad news is the hardest part of doing my job but it's a big part of doing the job well. If you feel that the law is wrong on this issue, I'd strongly encourage you to contact your legislators, as they are the only ones who can change it.
