Unemployment benefits are determined by if the loss of the job was by no falt of you own and your looking for another job did not affect your performance in your current job so it was not a justification to fire you unless you looked for a job while you were supposes to be actually doing your current job and it was keeping you from carrying out the duties of your current job then it would be pretty much your own falt.
