I work at a state run university which is in the process of being reorganized. I have a medical condition which prohibits me from driving for long periods. Currently a reasonable accommodation has been put in place which allows me to report to a campus in the South Jersey area even though my "home" campus is in the northern region of the state. Due to the reorganization of the University there is no longer an office for me to report to in the Southern Jersey area. I have found a temporary office on the southern campus which I can use three days a week and travel to the northern campus the other two which is really taking a toll on me. when the temporary office is no longer available i will be required to report to the northern campus five days a week which is not possible as the current two days a week is already more than I can handle. I am in the process of trying to establish a new accommodation however if an arrangement can not be reached removing my requirement to report to the Northern Jersey campus can I resign and still be able to collect unemployment benefits while I secure a position closer to my home.

This website is not affiliated with unemployment. Usually quitting makes you ineligible. However, if an employer let's you go because you can no longer perform the job you were doing and you are able to perform light duty you often qualify. So it seems you might qualify with your circumstances. Each determination for unemployment us made based on the facts of the specific case. Call the unemployment office before quitting. Has the employer paid into unemployment for you?
