I recently quit a salaried manager position with large company because i was persuaded into taking a job offer selling cars. Terms of the employment were never fully discussed beforehand. the manager who hired me did not inform me about the fact that i was an "at will" employee until i was already employed with the dealership and i had no knowledge of my pay plan until the following week. i resigned my previous job on June 12 and did not recieve my first check until July 5. the month gap in my pay has really caused me a great amount of financial hardship and im not sure what to do.

because of the stress of financial issues i am currently trying to fix, i was a no call no show to work yesterday and i am wondering if i would be eligable to collect unemployment until i can find another position.
Thank you.If you quit, you will not be eligible for unemployment. Individuals who voluntarily quit their job (e.g., because the new job is not what they expected it to be, it's not a good fit, etc.) are not eligible for unemployment.You can quit if you want to, but, hopefully you wait until you have a new job lined up.
