      If you quit voluntarily, you may not be eligible. Please call the claims center and apply accordingly if they are ok.

    I recently accepted a position on WPAFB with a new contractor who took over effective 1 Sep 14. They have since informed me I MUST use my own vehicle to drive around base and perform inspections(<100). If I refuse to use my own vehicle and am "let go", will I be eligible for unemployment as I would have been if I wouldn't have taken thier offer?

    • Adrian says:

      You have neither accepted the offer nor have you worked in this role. You will not be able to apply on the basis on the job you never worked.

      If you have worked before this,please consider applying.
