The reason Im not...

The reason Im not eligible is "you quit your last job with Albertson's but did not tell your employer why you were quitting". I called my employer and told the sup I was sick and had a doctors note for 2 weeks dismissal 5/26-6/16. He asked to provide the note and I said I would fax it to them as soon as I felt better. I received a letter on 6/5 asking the send in a doctors note - still not feeling well enough to drive to a fedex to fax until 6/15. Because the health problem would continue working at my current employment my union rep said I can retire and did not have to tell my supervisor. I retired and file for Unemployment since my retirement is not enough and Im not 62 for Social security. Should I appeal?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Calif

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

Union part time

Normally one would need to tell their supervisor if they are terminating employment. Employment is at will, but either party can terminate in most circumstances (unless there is a contract for a set time).

Normally voluntary termination (quiting, retiring) disqualifies the employee for unemployment benefits, but they may be eligibile for social security disability.

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
the supervisor was informed of ending employment on the day before the doctor notice expired. The retirement was forced since after 3 years and when on unemployment for 2 years and obligated to obtain full time work, and continually asking for more hours and a full time position, the employer kept lowering my hours and only provided 24 hours/week, and hired outside the company for a full time position that I was qualified for. It cost me my take home pay to drive over 25 miles to work and back. Is that reasonable? Meaning a normal person would stay employed under those conditions?

I am sorry to hear that;

unfortunately if the employee voluntarily terminates the employment that usually disqualifies from benefits; however, when an employer reduces hours, that may make an employee eligible for partial benefits, so long as the employee is willing and able to work full time.

And those conditions, particularly the long drive, would be very discouraging.
