    My mother is very sick and I am the only one taking care of her. My employer knows this, but now I have to work 2nd shift and I can’t leave my mother alone at night. I don’t know what to do, but if I quit my job because of this can I collect unemployment?

      You will not be eligible since unemployment insurance is only extended to those who become unemployed due to involuntary reasons.

      Hi Susane,

      You can collect benefits as your working hours have been significantly reduced. Please check if you have earned sufficiently and meet other eligibility requirements.
