Good morning. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
Voluntary separation is grounds for declaring an individual ineligible for unemployment benefits pursuant to Colorado Statute 8-73-108, which provides "...each eligible individual who is unemployed through no fault of his own shall be entitled to receive a full award of benefits; and that every person has the right to leave any job for any reason, but that the circumstances of his separation shall be considered in determining the amount of benefits he may receive, and that certain acts of individuals are the direct and proximate cause of their unemployment, and such acts may result in such individuals receiving a disqualification."
So, merely signing that they resign will not, in and of itself, disqualify them. They could still be eligible if they had good cause for resigning, such as "hostile work environment".
