Unemployment Insurance

Unemployment Insurance provides partial wage replacement to unemployed workers while they look for new work. You may be eligible for unemployment insurance benefits if you were laid-off, fired, or even if you voluntarily quit your most recent job.

If you have been initially denied unemployment insurance benefits, you have the right to appeal that decision.

Check these fact sheets, guides, and resources for information about your rights and steps you can take to protect them. If you need further information or assistance, contact the Workers’ Rights Clinic.
