Recent Unemployment Benefits questions

I was recently hired for a specific job in a specific

I was recently hired for a specific job in a specific location. At the very start of the hiring process, I disclosed that my boyfriend already works for the company I was applying for and he worked at the same location. I was still offered the job. I turned in my resignation at my previous job. On my last day at my previous job, my new manager called to tell me that I was not going to be working at the location originally designated because HR did not want my boyfriend and I to be in the same building. He is a surgeon and I am an occupational therapist with specific credentials that assist his patients. The purpose of the move was so that I could treat his patients again. The company also employs several other couples who work in the same department with no issue. For some reason we have been pigeonholed and now I have forfeited my previous job for a job I never would have signed on for. What are my options?

My employer changed my hours and I can't accommodate them

My employer changed my hours and I can't accommodate them due to lack of childcare for my daughter prior to her going to school. I explained this to her and at first she understood but then changed her mind and became adamant that I work the new hours. She claims now that she told me in my initial interview that tgese would be my hours which is not true. HR got involved and said she wouldn't budge and that if I can't work those hours I needed to send in my letter of resignation. I contacted an attorney who advised me against doing that. He said that since I was told not to return to work because I couldn't wirk those hours that I should send a letter that my employment was terminated. I did that today and HR contacted me saying that it would be in my best interest to resign since I wasn't officially terminated. I would not do that. My Union got involved and said that if I didn't report to my desk tomorrow at 7:30 it would be considered job abandonment. These were not the hours I had agreed upon. I don't know what to doJA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: New YorkJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: Full time, I am a member of a unionJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

I was let go from my job 2 weeks ago and offered a severance

I was let go from my job 2 weeks ago and offered a severance in exchange for signing a "voluntary separation and release agreement". I have done some research and I don't believe signing this agreement would prohibit me from also collecting unemployment while I search for a new place of employment. I also would like to ensure the wording in the agreement is standard. Thank you.
