Unemployment benefits are available for people who lose their jobs and are trying to re-enter the job market. The general rule is that if you are terminated you are eligible. If you resign you are not eligible. These rules sound simple, but it the application of them and the exceptions to these rules can be complex.
Even though you were terminated, you might not collect if your employer can prove that you committed willful misconduct. Similarly, even though you resigned, you might be able to collect if you can show that you resigned for legally sufficient cause attributable to your employer.
