Unemployment Benefits: Unemployment insurance benefits are payments made to eligible employees who become unemployed through no fault of their own and are re-trying to enter the job market. In general the rule is if you are terminated you are eligible. Sounds Simple, but the application of these rules and the exceptions to these rules can be complex. In some cases, even if you were terminated, you might not collect if your employer can prove that you committed willful misconduct. In some cases, if you resigned, you might be able to collect if you can show that you resigned for legally sufficient cause due to your employer. If you are denied unemployment benefits, you have the right to appeal this decision.
