Unemployment in California question

can you file unemployment if you quit your job? I'm asking because my boyfriend is working a job where he drives a car all day, if the car is broken down he doesnt get paid. So the car has been broken down before for about 2 weeks about 4 months ago and now its broken down again and has been for about a week. We are tired of this, we live paycheck to paycheck and I cant afford it alone. So we are thinking about going on unemployment somehow. Is it possible if he quit?

  • Usually, no, you don't qualify for unemployment if you quit, unless you can prove somehow you were being discriminated against or harrassed.

  • I honestly don't think you can get unemployment if you quit. My Friend had to leave her job because she didn't have a babysitter. She tried to collect unemployment, but they said she didn't qualify. Have you ever thought about working from home to make extra money? I work from home, and I love it! I am a stay at home Mommy to my 3 year old son, and 19 month old daughter. I work with a great team of Moms; we help each other create income from home. No parties, No inventory! Weekly pay!

    I would love to give you more information and help you reach your financial goals!
