Can i get or file for unemployment if i have to quit because of health reasons caused by the job?

i work in the front office and on the first floor of a nice building. across the hall is a restaraunt. every day when they open i swear all the smokers of america run in there and the smoke of nasty cigars and cheap cigarettes filter into my office. it makes me nauseated and gives me migraines almost every day. i've had to go home twice before because it caused my eyes to itch and burn and my nose to run and uncontrollable sneezing. i've called the management company and had them repair ours and the restaraunts ventillation system 3 times. what are my options? i so don't get paid enough here to risk my health.

Unless you get emphezema or lung cancer, you cannot file for unemployment due to health reasons. A lot of people get the same reactions to nicotine. Your only choice is to work somewhere else. Unemployment is mainly for people who get fired or for females who just went into labor.
