How does my spouse protest for unemployment in IL after taking another job she didnt like?

My spouse was forced to resign by the wonderful IL teacher system. Hurrah! After being let go, she took a temp job for a month and half during the summer and decided it wasnt for her. She applied for unemployment and was denied because she quit her last job. They were not concerned about being forced to resign from her teacher job. Is there any way to protest this? Seems like they should be looking at both jobs.

No. Since she quit her last job, the temp position, the state views it as voluntary separation. You cannot claim unemployment insurance for a voluntary separation or a lawful termination. You can only qualify for unemployment benefits by being wrongfully terminated, or being employed but recieving no hours.

Lucas, instead of defending your lady to the end, may l suggest you contact the school and carmly listen to the other side of the story. Remember their are two sides to every story, you only heard one side.

Uh, you don't just get to quit a job because you don't like it and then get unemployment. The unemployment fund would go broke fast if everyone who didn't like their job just quit and lived off unemployment.

No one can FORCE her to resign. She resigned. Then she quit the new job. No way to protest it. She is voluntarily unemployed.

Your spouse is unemployed by personal choice. She chose to resign. She also chose to quit her temp job. Your spouse does not qualify for unemployment because she was not laid off through no fault of her own. Your spouse does not want to work and earn a paycheck or she would not have quit her last job. She is not... More
