Can I collect Unemployment if I resign?
Hi 2 months ago I started a new job. Prior to taking this job I was given the impression it was an accounting position as a payroll coordinator. However, after starting to work for this company in NY, I realized it was actually just a data entry job where I am just inputting numbers and it has nothing to do with the accounting field. Is this a justifiable reason to leave this job and apply for unemployment?
