There is a question on the application asking if you were forced to quit!! Document what happens - names, dates, he said, you said. We are not affiliated with the unemployment office - you can call them for advice. If you have performance reviews, emails, etc anything that gives an outsider a true glimpse of the situation. Document any attempts you have made to salvage the employment relationship. REMEMBER, THE UNEMPLOYMENT OFFICE MAKES THE FINAL DECISION BASED ON INFORMATION FROM BOTH SIDES AND THE LAW. Personally I have trusted the unemployment office more than some employers. Remain calm and do not let them upset you. QUITTING MAKES IT HARDER TO COLLECT (not impossible, just more difficult).
