Unemployment Comp if I quit my jobYou do need to check with your state's Dept of Labor and find out their rules. However, an individual may sometimes receive unemployment if they quit their job for good reasons. In Michigan, it may be allowed if the employee quit for "good reasons directly attributable to the employer." In other words, the employer made it difficult or impossible for you to continue working there. For example, they want to transfer you to a different plant and are not giving you any other options, but the plant is 200 miles a way. That is an unreasonable commute - especially if you own your home in the area you are currently working in. You would have to sell your home and uproot your family. Michigan also allows a person to re-qualify once you have earned a stated amount of money. At that point, you would become eligible for benefits. You should also remember that most if not all states will allow you to protest if you are not awarded benefits, which could be a long process, but definitely worth the time if you can't find another job.

Check with the Department of Labor in your state; generally, a person must be terminated or laid off by the employer to collect unemployment compensation.

Can you collect unemployment if you quit to return to college?

I don't think so. If you quit you more than likely may not qualify for unemployment benefits. If you are terminated, you maybe able to receive it. As far as school is concerned, you will more than likely be able to still go to school, but you cannot quit a job and go to school and receive unemployment. If you quit, you disqualify yourself from getting unemployment, unless you have a very good reason to quit such as harrassment, or unsafe work place etc,. You can still go to school and receive financial aid which maybe more than what you would receive in unemployment benefits.
