Good Cause Reasons to Quit a Job
Reasons considered good cause can include not being paid, an unsafe or unhealthy work environment, a change in your job responsibilities, discrimination, health and safety risks on the job, or some types of family emergencies.
Reasons considered good cause are determined by your state unemployment office, and it varies by state. When you file for unemployment, you will be able to make a case for why you are eligible for unemployment benefits if the employer contests your claim. If your claim is denied, you should be entitled to a hearing where you can plead your case.
If you're not sure whether you're eligible, check with your state unemployment office to determine your eligibility for unemployment compensation.
