Being in an at will state
All states are "at will" states.
means that in either case, you still get unemployment benefits.
No state pays unemployment benefits for people who quit.
All it means is that your employer can't deny you those benefits if you quit, and you can't sue your employer if you are fired.
See above, and, while there are unique statutory exceptions in many states, in no state can you sue for being fired. The exceptions generally mirror public policy in the states, and of course federal law frequently applies as well, but your not someone we need to get into nuance with, are you. There is no state where "you're fired, get out" is actionable without the addition of "you're black" or "you wouldn't blow me" or whatever.
I believe the only exception is if you are "fired with cause". To do that the employer has to document that you have violated some requirements for employment (late X number of times, violations of codes of ethics, stealing, cheating, etc). And trust me, it has to be documented very well.
This is all about liability. It's mostly overkill, documenting that Mary wasn't fired because she wouldn't blow her boss or whatever. Largely it's best practice for large corps that occasionally deal with unions or need a structured CYA process that can be applied universally.
It's a lot harder than some people seem to think to be terminated and *not* be eligible for unemployment benefits.
No it isn't. Quit. Get fired for any sort of reasonable reason. Get fired for an unreasonable reason and have a ****** appeal during the benefits process, etc.
To make a long story short, I don't take any responsibility for anything I post here. It's not news, it's not truth, it's not serious. It's parody. It's satire. It's bitter. It's angsty. Your mother's a *****. You like to jack off dogs. That's right, you heard me. You like to grab that dog by the bone and rub it like a ski pole. Your dad? ***. Your priest? Straight. **** off and let me post. It's not true, it's all in good fun. Now go away.
