Hello and welcome,How does the work you are performing put your health in danger?
i come in contact with bio hazardous materials,such as blood ,urine linen and a inviroment that contains all types of disease daily
I see.Normally when an employee quits, they have the burden to prove that the working environment was so poor that a reasonable person would have been compelled to quit, or unemployment benefits will be denied.So what you need to do normally is to document all your efforts to get the employer to place you in the position for which you were trained. That means that you should communicate in writing with the employer so it is documented and can later be presented as proof to the commission if necessary.Letters to those responsible for your job placement should be drafted requesting that you be placed in the position for which you were hired and trained, and not be required to perform tasks that are dangerous to your health and for which you have no training.Any other efforts you make in an effort to compel the employer to place you in the job for which you were hired would typically make it more likely that the commission will approve your application for unemployment benefits since employees are not normally required to accept jobs for which they are not trained or are not consistent with their experience.
